Police Dog Section

Located in Tofoa the Police Dog Section consists of qualified police dog handlers and two trained drug detector dogs. Our Police Dog Section has been in development in the last 3 years under assistance of the New Zealand Police. The assistance has resulted in the deployment of 3 drug detector dogs and the certification of 6 police officers as dog handlers.

As a specialist unit our Police Dog Section is part of the Operational Support Division. The Dog Section routinely works out of the International Airport Fua’amotu and the Nuku’alofa Port. Our police dogs are also deployed to operations where illicit drugs presences is suspected.
