Campton Hills Police Department
K-9 Unit

Officer Levand and his K-9 partner, Koda, were partnered together in April of 2019.  Prior to becoming a team, Koda received three months of pre-training with nationally recognized master trainers at Tops Kennels in Grayslake, Illinois.   Tops is recognized as a leader in police K-9 training and used by many law enforcement agencies throughout the Midwest.  Once Officer Levand and Koda became a team, they completed an additional nine weeks of specialized training with the instructors at Tops.

Koda is a 94 lb. male, German Shepard from Czechoslovakia, who recently turned 2 on June 8th.  Koda is a dual-purpose working dog, trained in many areas, including: tracking, narcotics detection, article searches and apprehension.  During the initial nine weeks of training, the K-9 team received certifications in:  obedience, tracking, article searches, obstacle course and narcotics detection.  The training was extensive and attempted to include every scenario a K-9 team may face while on duty. 

Koda has adapted well in his new home with Officer Levand and his family.  His wonderful demeanor has made the transition between home and work an easy one.  This quality will allow Koda to interact with members of the community and also be ready when duty calls. 

Officer Levand and Koda would like to sincerely thank everyone who has given their support to bring the K-9 Unit to the Village of Campton Hills. 

  1. Officer Levand was instrumental in raising over $28,000 to allow CHPD to afford starting up the K-9 unit.

  2. Officer Levand was able to locate and obtain a 2013 Chevy Tahoe which was then fully equipped with all necessary police and safety equipment to be used as a K-9 Unit vehicle.

  3. Officer Levand and KODA have received nearly 1000 hours of training

  4. Koda will be used here in Campton Hills in many ways, including;

  • Searches (People – Articles - Buildings)

  • Community Events (Schools – NNO)

  • Tracking

  • Police and Civilian Protection

  • Narcotic Detention

  • Apprehension

Koda began his first shift with CHPD on Friday June 14, 2019.

K-9 Officer Koda was sworn in at the July 16, 2019 Board Meeting.

Have you ever heard the phrase, β€œone bad apple spoils the bunch?” The same is true for recycling, where one non-recyclable item can spoil an entire batch of otherwise good materials.
