The Lenoir County Sheriff's Office Canine Team conists of five deputies and their canine partners. These canine deputies are assigned to support all of the major divisions of the Sheriff's Office. These handlers and their partners attend specialized canine training upon their assignment to learn to work together. After their initial training, handlers train approximately 18 hours per month as a team. The Lenoir County Sheriff's Office was able to outfit our entire canine team with bullet and stab resistant vests for our canines in 2016. This was made possible by an outpouring of community support through financial donations and Vested Interest in Canines (non-profit group that lead this effort).
