The Bloomfield Township Police Department's Canine Unit is
the longest standing unit in Oakland County. Formed in the
mid-1960s when Bloomfield Township was more rural than
suburban, the Unit reached its heyday in the 70's. At the
time, Bloomfield Township Police Department boasted a premier
K-9 Unit comprised of seven dog-handlers and seven dogs, which
responded to police dog service requests from all over the
County and throughout Metro-Detroit. Over the course of the
years, the Unit was down-sized when other police departments,
recognizing the value of a well-trained police dog,
established their own units.
Today, Bloomfield Township's Canine Unit consists of
Officer Jason Kollman, his canine partner Rico, Officer
Angela Carlson, and her partner Blaez. These teams search
buildings, track suspects and respond to narcotics calls.
Because Bloomfield Township has two K9 teams, a police dog
is almost always available to assist patrol officers.
