K9 Handler Team

The St. Croix County Sheriff's Office has a very valuable K9 handler team within the patrol division:

Deputy Josh Stenseth and partner Roan. Roan is a Belgian Malinois. They have been working as a team for the Sheriff's Office since early 2018 and are certified in all patrol work, including narcotics.

K9 Unit Duties

Our K9 unit is available on a 24 hour, on-call basis to conduct building searches for offenders in hiding; assist in the arrest or prevent the escape of serious or violent offenders, protect officers and others from death or serious injury; track suspects, or locate lost or missing persons, hidden instrumentalities or evidence of a crime; and detect the presence of concealed narcotics.

K9 Roan is certified yearly through the US Police Canine Association.
