K-9 Unit
McLean County K-9 UnitIMG_2804_thumb_thumb_thumb.jpg:

In the summer of 2011, then Sheriff Mike Emery appointed Deputy Jon Albee as one of our K-9 handlers with Keej. In December of 2015, the current Sheriff Jon Sandage appointed Deputy Ryan Homan as our second K-9 handler with Rico. After successfully completing the training course, Deputy Homan and Rico joined Deputy Albee and Keej out on the roads continuing the war on crime.

Full-Service Unit:

Both Keej and Rico are considered a full-service K-9 unit because they are certified in the following areas:
  • Area Searches    
  • Article Searches                                                                                              
  • Criminal Apprehension
  • Criminal Tracks Homan Rico   
  • Narcotics Detection
  • Obedience

The MCSO K-9 Unit works and trains closely with other local police K-9 units and is proud to serve and protect the citizens of McLean County.

The McLean County Sheriff’s Office would also like to recognize our past K-9 units and thank them all for their efforts and hard work over the years.
