BCSO Awarded Grant for K9

The Burnet County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a grant from K9s4COPS, an organization that provides K9s to law enforcement agencies on a grant basis.

Deputy Kyle Ciolfi was selected from our staff to be the K9 handler and was able to meet and bond with K9 Ron (aka Jag) on 2/18/2019. They will now begin an intensive K9 course together at Pacesetter K9 in Liberty Hill that will equip Deputy Ciolfi and K9 Ron to perform narcotics detection and tracking functions.

As a part of the grant agreement, Burnet County SO will equip a patrol unit with the appropriate K9 cage, provide a kennel at the deputy’s house, and make arrangements for feeding and medical care for the K9.
