Hudson County Sheriff’s Office Adds New Patrol Vehicles and New K9 Units
JERSEY CITY, NJ - The Hudson County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce the acquisition of 10 new vehicles, five K9 units and five patrol vehicles. The vehicles will be used in tandem with the new K9’s to better serve and protect the residents of Hudson County.
The new K9’s, were purchased via the Render Safe Grant. Four of them are German Shepherds and will be trained in bomb and explosive detection and patrols. These four K9’s are expected to begin working during the early summer months. In addition the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office is adding a Bloodhound, the first in any law enforcement agency in Hudson County. This breed of dog is specifically known for their human tracking abilities, however it will not be used to track criminals due to their nonaggressive nature. The dog will be used to track missing persons, autistic children that have gone missing, and elderly people who suffer from Alzheimer's disease or dementia. The K9 will be available for service by early May 2018
“I would like to thank Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise, Chairman of the Freeholder Board Anthony Vainieri, the Chairman of the County’s Public Safety Committee Anthony Romano, and the entiere Freeholder Board for their continued support,” said Hudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari. “Thanks to their leadership in providing our office with the equipment, training and personnel required the residents of Hudson County are better protected now than they have ever been, my officers and I will continue to proudly serve and protect all the people who live, work and travel in Hudson County.”
The additions of these new K9’s bolsters the ranks of the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit to a total of seven K9’s. 5 of them trained in explosives and patrol, one in narcotics, and one in tracking missing persons.
