The Waukegan Police Department's Canine Unit has been in service for over 20 years. Generally, Waukegan Police Department has a K9 on each shift, currently they have three K9's in active service. The K9 Unit is overseen by Commander Scott Chastain.
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 Keith Zupec.
