The Town of Long View Canine Unit is staffed by Officer Justin Reid and K9 Lucca. Officer Reid has been a certified K9 handler for over 8 years. He holds certifications through the North American Police Working Dog Association and the United States Law Enforcement Canine Association.
Canine Lucca is a 4-year-old male Dutch Shepherd. Lucca is a high drive dog who loves to work. Lucca assists Officer Reid everyday while working, and when Officer Reid is not working, Lucca stays with Officer Reid at his home. Lucca has been trained to perform narcotics searches, tracking, building searches, area searches, obedience, article searches, and suspect apprehension. Lucca trains for at least 16 hours a month with Officer Reid.
Police K9s are great resources to a police department due to supporting a variety of patrol operations, crime prevention, and providing a high level of officer safety.
