In March 2009, after the retirement of K9 Jerry, we welcomed K9 Ramon to the Folsom Police K9 Unit. Ramon is a three year old German Shepherd that came to us from Kreative Kennels in Turlock, CA. Ramon is an incredibly good natured dog, as well as being very social. Ramon has quickly become a part of our family.

I want to thank everyone who came out on a very hot Saturday to support the Folsom Police Canine Officer’s Association.

The Folsom Police K9 Unit needs your assistance with much needed training locations. As a matter of conducting productive weekly training we are always looking for new areas, structures and scenarios to use in our training. If you have an office building, vacant residence or other type of structure/property that would be available for K9 training please visit our training site page and complete the contact information form. One of our K9 handlers will contact you regarding your training site. We would hope that the presence of the Folsom Police Canine Unit would reduce the amount of criminal activity occurring at your location. Our training hours are from 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM, every Wednesday night. This time of day makes it very difficult to find locations to properly train our canine partners. We look forward to hearing from you.

Officer Lou Wright and K9 Eddy, along with seven other canine teams from various local agencies competed in the 2009 Top K9 Police Dog Contest. Canine handlers submitted information and fun facts about their canine partners, along with a short video. The public was encouraged to visit www.sactopdogcontest.com to vote for their favorite canine team.
Officer Lou Wright and K9 Eddy were also featured on Channel 31 Good Day Sacramento. Visit the www.gooddaysacramento.com video section to see Lou and Eddy in action.

In March 2007 I was selected to be a K9 Handler and was assigned K9 Jerry as my new partner. Jerry’s previous handler decided to move on from the K9 Unit. I had already worked with the K9 Unit as a decoy/agitator, and was already familiar with Jerry. Jerry was a very high drive, energetic dog. Weighing in at over 100 pounds, Jerry was a lot of dog to handle. Jerry immediately became a part of the family and enjoyed playing ball in the backyard. Jerry also enjoyed playing with my daughter and our one year old Scottish Terrier puppy (Tink).

Thank you to everyone who came out to BJ’s Restaurant to support the K9 Association. Thank you to the management and staff of BJ’s Restaurant for all of their hard work. The event was very successful. The donated monies went directly to the K9 Association to cover the costs of medical treatments for our three retired canine partners. We hope to make this an annual event.

The Folsom Police Canine Officer’s Association will be holding a fundraiser at BJ’s Restaurant (2730 East Bidwell Street, Folsom) on Monday May 18th from 4:00 PM to 10:00 PM. In 2009 the Folsom Police Department has retired three canines due to various health issues. Because we respect and care for our canine partners, we are dedicated to supporting them throughout their career and retirement. The Folsom Police Canine Officer’s Association (a non-profit, public charity) was established to assist in the medical expenses for retired canines.
Please come have a great meal and support our canine partners who have given so much to the Folsom Police Department and the community.

Thank you again for all of your support.
