The New Windsor Police Department K-9 Unit was started in 1986. Since then 13 teams have served the town. Each team consists of a handler and a canine. The teams undergo extensive training, which can consist of up to 25 weeks of initial training and many hours of ongoing in-service training. The training may include patrol training, detection training or both.
Patrol training prepares the teams for police patrol duties and includes:
• extensive obedience training, including both hand and voice commands
• on and off-lead heelwork
• walking and distance control
• agility
• article search and evidence recovery
• building and open area searches for suspects
• handler protection
• tracking of suspects and missing persons
• criminal apprehension
Detection training prepares the teams to search for and indicate on the presence of either narcotics or explosives. 
Since it’s formation in 1986, members of the K-9 Unit have responded to about 10,000 calls for service. These calls include everything from alarms and building searches to tracking and apprehending armed suspects. Over the years, the unit is credited with locating and arresting over 200 suspects as well as locating narcotics, leading to the arrests of many more. The unit is also credited with the seizure of over 750 pounds of marijuana, 19 pounds of cocaine and 1.5 pounds of MDMA, as well as quantities heroin, methamphetamine, PCP, prescription drugs and over $180,000 in cash.
In addition to their regular patrol duties, the teams are required to attend monthly in-service training throughout their careers. In-service training is necessary for the teams to maintain proficiency in their basic skills and to ensure continued effective performance. It provides a means of constant reevaluation, as teams must demonstrate, to the satisfaction of a K-9 trainer, their ability to perform basic skills. 
The teams may also choose to show their stuff in the competitive arena. The United States Police Canine Association (USPCA) holds regional and national trials where teams may compete against others for trophies, awards and bragging rights. 
When they are not working, training or competing, the teams are available for demonstrations. Demonstrations have been offered for many schools, businesses, organizations and events, such as New Windsor Community Day.
The Aftermath K9 Grant® was founded to showcase, support, and reward the unique contributions made by law enforcement and their K9 units across the country. Indirectly, the K9 Grant raises safety awareness and community kinship throughout the neighborhoods that Aftermath and our law enforcement partners proudly serve.
This year, the Aftermath K9 Grant® will award a total of $16,500 in grants that can be used to further established K9 units or to create brand new ones. Communities nationwide will determine the top eight award recipients through popular vote.
• $5,000 – 1st place grant recipient
• $4,000 – 2nd place grant recipient
• $3,000 – 3rd place grant recipient
• $2,000 – 4th place grant recipient
• $1,000 – 5th place grant recipient
• $500 – 6th to 8th place grant recipients
