Canine Unit

The Waukegan Police Department's Canine Unit has been in service for over 15 years. Generally, the Waukegan Police Department has at least two dogs in active service at any time. We would ideally like to have as many of these amazing animals working for the citizens as possible.

We are truly grateful for the generous donations of time, money, food, and medical care that allow us to keep our program going. Without these private donations, the Canine Unit would not exist. If you have an interest in donating to the Waukegan Police Department's Canine Unit please email Chief Wayne Walles.
