DOPS would like to extend its sincere thanks and appreciation to “Mason”, Dakota Ojibway Police Service K-9 who retired in December 2015. Special Thanks to Cst. McArthur for the commitment to the Police Service by rearing and training Mason with sole purpose of keeping our members, citizens and communities safe. While at the same time, thanking Cst. McArthur's family for the sacrifices they made by having an additional border during Mason's Service and willingness to keep Mason into his retirement.

With Mason moving onto to retirement; DOPS has obtained another PSD - DUTCH. However, he is a long way off from becoming operational as he is in the early stages of his training. Although, members and staff will see Dutch and Cst. Steven McArthur together on and off duty while they develop a bond and engage in training activities.
DUTCH has started his police training, and with training will be held in the future, where she will be trained in tracking, building searches, criminal apprehension, and narcotics searches. DUTCH is the 3rd DOPS Police dog, following MASON & JADE.
In 2013, the Police Service accessed a puppy (Jade) through a rearing program. A puppy was selected and the pup and be the 2nd canine handler for DOPS. Jade was reared by DOPS but has departed to another handler and is now at Winnipeg Police Service.
