LEXINGTON COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT K-9 UNIT
The current K-9 unit is comprised of 8 dogs: 1 bloodhound (Forest), 1 bomb dog (Dash), and 6 multi-purpose dogs (Ronin, Bono, Robin, Injas, Arcos, and, Bady).  These dogs aid the department by tracking, sniffing out drugs/gun powder/weapons/bombs, going on manhunts, helping find lost persons, and apprehending suspects that pose a threat to their handler.  Each of these dogs has a deputy handler that takes special care of them.  When asked to identify the biggest benefit of having dogs on the force, Sgt. Applegate, who is Ronin’s handler and is in charge of the K-9 Unit, said “(the dogs) prevent things from happening.  People don’t run or fight as much when one of the dogs is present.”

SWIFT WATER RESCUE EQUIPMENT
A $50,000 donation was made to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Foundation earmarked specifically for swift-water rescue equipment and training in swift-water rescue missions.  Over the years, grants from the Motorola Solutions Foundation to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Foundation have enabled continual training in swift-water rescue missions for additional individuals in the Sheriff’s Department as well as extending the training to the Lexington County Fire Service Emergency Response Team and Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
