In March 2014,  Mauldin P.D.  traveled to Tarheel Canine in North Carolina to select a new Police Service Dog.  At that time, K-9 “Ambrose” was selected to join the Mauldin Police Department.  Ambrose was 14 months old at the time of his selection.  Ambrose is a 70 lb, brown and black Belgian Malinois who was imported from Holland.

As a police service dog (PSD),  K-9 Ambrose  is trained in tracking suspects or missing persons, evidence and property finds, building searches, area searches, controlled substance detection, suspect apprehension and handler/citizen protection work.    In this capacity, K-9 Ambrose is used on a daily basis to assist the City of Mauldin Officers, as well as being requested by multiple agencies throughout the upstate for assistance.  K-9 Ambrose  also performs a wide variety of demonstrations to various community groups, schools and businesses.

K-9 Ambrose’s  handler is Officer A. Hansen, who has been with the Mauldin Police Department for 3 years.
