Canine Program



The Oklahoma Department of Corrections Canine Program supports the agency's 25 facilities with specially trained dogs for use in contraband detection, fugitive apprehension and area law enforcement assistance.

Housed at the Washita Valley Correctional Complex in Pauls Valley, the Canine Program consists of 15 dogs of German shepherd, Belgian Malinois and redbone coonhound/bloodhound breeds (as well as one mixed breed) and their handlers.

The unit plays a key role in reducing contraband inside ODOC facilities, discouraging escapes and improving cooperation with other agencies.
