BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – The Palm Bay police are getting the bad stuff off the streets as the PBPD Nights A South Squad got the above drug bust last week just by patrolling and doing routine traffic.

“K9 Sheba was able to get a hit on the car and the resulting search yielded various amounts of marijuana, cocaine, MDMA, amphetamine and heroin,” said Palm Bay police officials in a Facebook post.

Sheba is a Dutch Shepherd, and in the past, she tracked and apprehended six suspects and was involved in numerous non-physical subject controls where she prevented further revelation on scene just with her presence.

The Palm Bay Police Department’s Canine Unit is among the best and most highly trained in the State of Florida.

The K-9 Teams assigned to the Uniform Services Division are cross-trained for Patrol. All teams are certified through FDLE as Patrol dogs, which is a minimum standard.

Teams also have advanced certifications through North American Police Work Dog for drug detection and Patrol when training funds are available.

The dogs and their handlers must train hundreds of hours to become re-certified to work in the public arena.
