Salem Police Department has two K9 teams consisting of Patrolman Michael Garber & K9 Simon and Patrolman Steve LaRosa & K9 Argo.
K9 Simon was Salem’s first dual-purpose canine certified in narcotics detection and patrol-related work in 2016. K9 Argo joined the police department in 2017. The two teams are certified in narcotics detection. Simon and Argo are also both certified in building searches, area searches, article searches, tracking, and protection.
Salem's K9 Unit is funded through contributions, fundraising projects, and special events. The Salem Police Department K9 Fund is held at the Salem Community Foundation. These contributions cover the costs associated with Salem's K9 program. We are thankful for the generosity of individuals, organizations, and businesses who actively contribute to our fund!
The Salem Police Department K9 Fund was established to help obtain equipment, training, education, and medical costs for Salem’s K9 teams. We are very grateful for your financial support of our K9 Fund. Thank you!
