K9 Program

K9 with Vehicle

In addition to our normal visitation Capital District State Parks also routinely host special events that are attended by large public audiences, various elected officials, and other dignitaries. State Park Peace Officers work in conjunction with other law enforcement agencies to provide security for these events.  The Capital District Public Safety Team includes a K-9 program that is trained in both law enforcement and bomb detection.

Our current K-9 team pictured above is Officer Gleckler and Thor.  Our K-9 team trains constantly to offer our facilities and visitors the highest quality K-9 protection available.  Officer Gleckler and Thor have received numerous awards for their efforts including California State Parks Top Dog award in 2011.
