Copley K-9 Unit

The K9 Unit's duties are to track and apprehend criminal offenders as well as missing persons and to detect the presence of narcotics. The K9 is specially trained and certified in drug detection, building searches, tracking, and obedience. The K9 Unit's handler, Officer Kenny Porter, is an experienced handler with specialized training and vast knowledge in the identification, concealment methods, and transportation of illegal narcotics. Officer Porter also provides public demonstrations to increase awareness and understanding of the purpose and function of the unit.

Officer Porter's K9 Officer is named Chip.  Chip is a German Shepard who came from Germany. You may see Officer Chip out and about with Officer Porter, please say hi! (After asking permission of course!)

With heartfelt appreciation to Brady’s K9 Fund for donating a custom-made vest to Chip.  Brady’s K9 Fund was founded by Brady Snakovsky when he was only ten years old.  He couldn’t understand why all K9 Officers were not wearing ballistic vests like their handlers.  After learning that the vests are very expensive and not automatically issued to the K9’s, he made it a mission to raise funds to protect those who protect us and make sure that they come home at the end of their shift. Thank you very much, Brady and the Brady’s K9 Fund!

We would also like to thank Cops, Kids & K-9S for their monetary donations toward our K9 Fund.  Cops, Kids & K-9s are from the Chagrin Falls area and raise money to support law enforcement and their K9 Units throughout the United States.
