K9 Knox

Knox is our favorite four-legged officer and a local celebrity.

K9 Knox and his partner Officer Hayes work to keep Alsipians safe and share some joy along the way.
Knox is a Belgian Malinois that started training when he was only 8 weeks old! He specializes in finding illegal drugs like heroin, cocaine, marijuana, and other products. He also is an expert at tracking suspects, conducting building searches, and protecting our officers so they can protect you.
His favorite snack is – ironically – a hot dog.
A huge thank you to the Alsip community for the crowdfunding for Knox’s protective gear! Your generosity has Knox protected with special goggles that are great for tracking suspects through thick brush and wooded areas so his eyes and face don’t get scratched. He also has a cooling best with cooling packs and hearing protection thanks to your support!
Snap a photo with Knox and tag us on social media @AlsipPolice, we’ll give you a shout-out!
