GPS Trackers for K9 Officers Makes Sense

Allow all your officers to see a K9’s position in the field

The need for portable GPS tracking for police K9’s has been brought to light over the years by many real-world scenarios. Electronic wearable GPS tracking systems provide real time tracking that can be displayed at dispatch, on a laptop, or even cell phone so that everyone knows the K9’s position ultimately keeping a safer officer response. These devices can also be used to assist in K9 training to better see the path taken by the K9 and make the necessary corrections for improvements.

Simple and Cost Effective K9 Tracking

The Track Star K9 Tracking Device is a simple and cost effective way to track the location and movement of K9 officers operating in any environment. The device is enclosed in a waterproof, shock-absorbing enclosure that is attached to the K9 by threading the strap through the slots provided in the enclosure so that it can then be attached to a K9 vest for improved safety of the equipment and the K9.

The device is programmed to send GPS coordinate data to the Track Star software platform for viewing, reporting and activity replay functions. Track Star’s TAIP Forwarder can be used, if desired, to “echo” GPS location data to most CAD / RMS platforms.

Did you know? K9 Veterans Day is March 13th

K9 Veterans Day traces its origins back to March 13, 1942, the official birthday of the U.S. K9 Corps. In this esteemed program, dogs underwent training for diverse roles, taking on tasks often deemed too challenging or dangerous for their human comrades. In honor of their unwavering spirit, K9 Veterans Day is commemorated annually on March 13th, serving as a heartfelt tribute to these brave canines. Over time, this observance has expanded to include dogs actively serving in law enforcement.
