The Westland Police Department currently fields one canine team Officer Derek Trosper with his partner "Narco". Canine Narco has been in service since 2012.
Canine Narco is fully trained, multi-purpose German Shepherd and is certified through the National Association of Professional Canine Handlers (NAPCH) and K-9 ATF. Narco is trained in obedience, narcotic detection, building searches, evidence searches, area searches, tracking, and handler protection.
Prior to certification with NAPCH and K-9 ATF, Officer Trosper was required to complete a four month training academy with their canine partners. The team was required to pass an extensive certification course as part of this training. The canine team continues to train weekly to maintain their skills. Weekly training consists of life-like scenarios which officers may come across while on patrol.
Canine Hemi retired in 2019 when his handler Officer Mike Little was promoted to Sergeant and took on the role of patrol shift supervisor. Canine Hemi is enjoying the retired life with the Little family at their home.
Officer Trosper along with his canine partner are available for public demonstrations with schools, churches or other community groups. If you have any questions about the canine program or would like to request a demonstration please contact Deputy Chief Brian Miller at (734)467-3529
