Morgan K-9 Corner

Morgan K-9 Corner


The Parsons Police Department has been developing a K-9 program over the last few years to help combat the narcotics epidemic in Parsons. This program was recently given life and was made possible by generous donations from civic groups, businesses, and individuals in the community. The Parsons Police Department now has one dual-purpose dog that is trained in Tracking and Narcotics Detection. These two areas will be the biggest help to our agency and the community to stem the flow of illegal drugs that plague our great city.

The K-9 Handler is Corporal Christian Smith  Corporal Smith is a 4-year veteran of the Parsons Police Department. He has been a great asset to the department and will make a great K-9 Handler. 

The Parsons Police Department is recognizing the donations by way of a Donor Plaque in the lobby of the police department. This is to thank the supporters of the Parsons K-9 Program who have made donations. This program relies heavily on the donations of citizens and businesses for the care, up-keep, and new equipment for the K-9 Program. These supporters helped launch and continue to support the K-9 Program. Their level of contribution falls into the following 4 tiers.

Diamond Donator-         Contributions of $10,000 and up

Ruby Donator-               Contributions of $5,000 - $9,999

Emerald Donator-          Contributions of $1,000 - $4,999

Paw Donator-                Contributions of $50 - $999

These donor contributions will be displayed on a plaque in the lobby of the police department. We also want to recognize the 'Paw Supporters' by adding their name to our web page as a token of appreciation.

Smith and Morgan4


Hello, my name is Morgan. I am a full-blooded Labrador Retriever, which is great be cause I love to retrieve drugs from little hidden places. Like my counterpart Karim, I started my training at the Little Rock K-9 Academy where I learned all about hide and seek. I can find anything hidden. My partner is Officer Christian Smith. We like to go on calls where I get to work and show off my skilled nose. I can track drugs, bad guys and lost people too. I am happy to be apart of this K-9 Team.
