THERE IS NEVER A CHARGE FOR OUR SERVICES
How are we deployed?
GPSK9s deploy ONLY at the request of federal, state, county, and local law enforcement. When deployed, we operate using the Incident Command System. We do not perform criminal law enforcement duties and will act as needed only in a support role for law enforcement, answering directly to them.
GPSK9s units are available and ready 24/7/365. We are continually training and furthering our education with seminars, having nationally accredited SAR personnel brought in-house. The team is mentored by Ben Alexander, Former Executive Director Centex SAR, former Branch Director TEXSAR.
