Canine Unit

The SAISD Police Department is proud to announce the retirement of its first narcotics detection
canine SADE in June of 2013. K9 SADE serviced the SAISD community for eight years. Handler 
Officer Whitlock and K9 SADE performed contraband searches for SAISD high schools and middle
schools, assisted other agencies with narcotic searches and performed countless presentations to
the elementary schools within our district.  K9 Sade will be greatly missed.  She has retired in the
home of her handler Officer Whitlock.

The SAISD Police department welcomes K9 ACE, a male Labrador retriever, to the department.
ACE was purchased from Global K9 in Somerset Texas and is certified in the detection of illegal
narcotics. Officer Dilloway has been assigned as K9 ACE’s handler. Together they will continue
where K9 SADE left off and provide the SAISD community with detection services and presentations
to the students within our district.

It is the goal of the SAISD Police Department to reduce the presence of illegal drugs on and
around District property, through effective utilization of the Canine Team. The Canine program
is comprised of 3 components to achieve this mission: Reactive, Preventive and Proactive.

Reactive: The Canine Team may be called upon by administrators, staff, community, police
officers, other law enforcement agencies, etc. in response to specific information.

Preventive: The Canine Team will be making unscheduled visits to high school & middle school
campuses to perform random sweeps (the checking of designated areas for narcotics), throughout
the school year. High visibility of the Canine Team along with random drop-ins at campuses are
essential elements of the preventive component.

Proactive: This component is very important to the overall goal of reducing the presence of
illegal drugs on our campuses. With a primary focus on the elementary schools, the Canine Team
will be available for career days, presentations, etc. Anti-drug education is vital to students at all
levels in reinforcing the dangers of drugs. The Canine Team can add significant support to this
message in a friendly, non-threatening manner. This may be initiated upon request of the
