Vapor Wake Officer Archives

At Vapor Wake we’re proud to see our K9 units serving the community. Below you’ll find news stories and blog posts showing how Vapor Wake detection canine units go on to find success in local law enforcement and security teams. Dogs who were trained at our facility are hard at work every day in sports venues, mass transit systems, concerts, and other high-traffic areas to keep the public safe.

Vapor Wake detection canines receive unique training to work in busy places with large crowds. Unlike other dogs who work in one static location, Vapor Wake K9s are trained to find body-worn explosives and track the odor itself. This allows them to be mobile and track dangerous weapons as they move quickly through groups of people. Vapor Wake detection canines are vital members of the Lexington Police Department, Fort Collins Police Services, New York City Police Department, and more.
