The Windsor Police Department would like to announce the creation of the Windsor K9 Unit. This unit will consist of two dogs, two handlers, and a supervisor. Officer Marshal Allen and his K9 partner Xaros, along with Officer Clara Steingart and her K9 partner Zuma will spend the next month bonding before attending the K9 academy in January. Zuma and Xaros will be trained as dual-purpose K9s, meaning that both dogs will be trained in narcotics detection as well as criminal apprehension.
Officer Allen has been with the Windsor Police Department for the last 6 years. He will be working with Xaros, a 16 month old male Belgian Malinois. Officer Steingart has been a Windsor Police Officer since 2018. She will be working with Zuma, an 18 month old male German Shepard. Both dogs in the K9 unit come from Poland. The Windsor Police Department K9 Unit looks forward to serving the community.
