In another move that will improve the efficient delivery of protective services in Greater Victoria, the Saanich and Victoria police departments announced they have combined K9 units. The Integrated Canine Service will operate out of VicPD's Esquimalt headquarters and brings together two units that have served their communities for many years. The new unit will use @ics_k9 on Instagram and Twitter.
Joining forces makes sense as the communities are interdependent on each other. Last week, the Victoria fire department announced mutual aid agreements with neighbouring municipalities.
