Welcome to the Olmsted-Rochester Law Enforcement K-9 Foundation!


Police dogs are an invaluable tool to law enforcement officers as well as to the community. They track suspects, sniff out narcotics, explosives, weapons, critical evidence, and so much more. They perform a critical role in making the officer’s/deputy’s job much safer.

The Olmsted-Rochester Law Enforcement K-9 Foundation recognizes the importance of these animals.  The Foundation was created as a non-profit organization with the intent of supporting the K-9 units of the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office and Rochester Police Department. Although the Foundation is a separate entity, it works in cooperation with the K-9 units to identify and provide for special needs where the department’s regular budget falls short.

We welcome you to explore our website and learn more about the Olmsted County Sheriff and Rochester Police Department K-9 units, the handlers, and of course, the dogs!
