The Allen County Sheriff’s Canine Corps was first started in 1972, under the direction of Sheriff Edward L. Fair. Three first three Deputies assigned to the Allen County K-9 Corp were Cpl. Daniel N. Protsman, Dep. Dennis Briggs, and Dep. Harold Davenport. These Officers were assigned to receive training in Ft. Wayne Indiana, where after completion, the three handlers and three canines were certified as police K-9’s. Since that time, the Allen County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Corp has received the distinction of being named a Nationally Certified Police K-9 Training Facility. Not only are they recognized as a National Police K-9 Training Facility, but they are also recognized as one of the finest Police K-9 Units in the United States. Numerous K-9 Teams from throughout the United States have competed in the US Police Canine Association National Trials, earning national top honors. Many Deputies in the past few decades that the Sheriff’s Office K-9 has been established, have spent countless hours training and handling these animals.
