K9 Safety
To keep Leda and Tar safe while they’re working, the La Vista Police K-9 vehicles have a custom fit, aluminum kennel enclosure inserted in the back seat. The kennel is designed to protect the dogs in case of a crash, as well as keep the dog comfortable while on duty. The kennel insert also has a spill-proof water bowl and room for Leda and Tar to move around.

Each K-9 vehicle is also equipped with a temperature monitoring system. If the temperature inside the car reaches unsafe levels for the dog, a fan turns on automatically and the window rolls down, a pager carried by each handler will sound an alarm as well. This system is essential for the protection of the dog while on duty in its marked Police Car.

People can help Leda and Tar concentrate on their job by not approaching them or trying to pet them while they are working.
