The K-9 Division
The objective of the Burbank Police
Department's K-9 Unit is to provide the Department with an additional
specialized Unit to increase the effectiveness in the detection and
prevention of crime as well as the apprehension of criminals. The K-9 Unit
provides a tangible service to the Department and has a psychological effect
on the criminal activity within the Community.
The greatest value of our K-9 lies in his keen senses of sight, smell, and
hearing which aid in the search for drugs, persons, and of buildings. The
K-9 Unit provides a positive public image of the Department's expertise and
The Burbank Police Department's K-9, Officer Lary and Officer Fram, are
trained in obedience, agility, evidence searches, building searches and
apprehension work. The officers and their K-9 partners have received
thousands of hours of training in drug detection, tracking, and suspect
