Another recent change to the Red Bank Police Department has been the addition of the first ever police canine unit. K-9 Hunter, a Belgian Malinois, joined the force in 2014 and is partnered with Ptl. Stanley Balmer. This canine team is cross trained for patrol and narcotics detection. K-9 Hunter has been used on numerous occasions to track wanted subjects and on many occasions for scent detection during narcotics investigations. The Red Bank Police canine unit is always available to do demonstrations for school groups or other interested organizations.
