K-9 FAQ

Our K9 unit is composed of German shepherds and a bloodhound. 
Yes, our K9 live with their handlers.
Absolutely! The canine vehicles are equipped with the most up-to-date canine safety devices on the market. Heat sensors in the car will activate the car’s horn, roll down the back windows and turn on a fan in the car if the dog’s area gets too warm. Remote control door opening ensures the dog can get out of the car to assist the handler at the touch of a button or in any other emergency situation.
A number of things contribute to the dog's keen sense of smell. Their long snouts have a large turbinate bone structure that holds millions of scent receptor cells, plus the olfactory lobe of their brain is much larger than that of a human being.
Injuring or killing a K-9 is a 3rd Degree Felony punishable by imprisonment of up to five years in prison.
Like any service dog, you must ask the handler if you can touch the K-9. Police dogs are trained to protect themselves and their handlers. It's important that the handler introduce you to his or her dog properly.
To request a K9 presentation, please call 801-451-4100 and ask to speak with the Patrol Division Captain. 

Ankle Monitor Program

The ankle monitor program is an alternative to incarceration for non-violent offenders in Davis County.
Participants in the ankle monitor program are court ordered and, depending on their crime, may be required to provide daily or as-needed urinalysis.
The ankle monitor program operates out of the Davis County Sheriff's Office former Work Center, located at 883 W Clark Lane in Farmington, Utah.
Ankle monitor program participants may work in the community or, in lieu of jail time, may gain skills assisting Davis County Facilities employees with grounds and building maintenance.
In addition to being an alternative to incarceration, the ankle monitor program is beneficial because it maximizes the offender's opportunities for success, improves rehabilitation outcomes, and is cost effective for taxpayers and participants.
Implemented in October 2020, the ankle monitor program has proven to be an effective alternative to incarceration for nearly 75 percent of participants.

In 1978, our Patrol Division adopted a unique blending of law enforcement and para-medicine. We are one of the first paramedic services to be fully licensed and certified by the State of Utah. 

Our deputy/paramedic professionals are committed to providing quality medical response, evaluation, treatment, and transport for Davis County residents and visitors. 

Each deputy/paramedic carries the necessary equipment in their vehicle to handle both law enforcement and medical calls. When acting as a paramedic, they assume medical control of a scene and convey all aspects of care from initial patient assessment and treatment to continued care during transport to the hospital. This taks is accomplished in collaboration with local fire departments that act as basic life support and other ambulance transport.

In addition to the deputy/paramedic positions within our Patrol Division, we also have deputy/law enforcement only professionals.

In addition to providing an interactive program for youth, and because of the core role parents have as influencers in their child's life, N.O.V.A. provides a program for parents.
