The K9 division was created in 1993.  Due to the unique abilities of a service dog,
the Smyrna Police Department wanted to increase our investigative ability with the use of a trained K9 team. 
 
Duties of a K9 team include, but are not limited to:
- narcotics detection
- explosive detection
- man-tracking
- building/area searches
- criminal apprehension

- provide support to any other police division as necessary

It is with great sadness to announce that K9 Renzo passed away on Saturday, July 20th. K9 Renzo began service in 2008 with his handler, Don Godby. They worked together until 2015, when Renzo had to retire due to health reasons. Renzo was able to enjoy his final years at home with Officer Godby and his family. We appreciate his service and he will be truly missed by his family and this agency.
