TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima County Sheriff's Deputies say three K9 deputies will soon be hitting the streets with their new partners.

The department announced on their Facebook page Thursday that three canine deputies finished their required training.

"We are very proud of the handlers and their new partners," department officials said. "We look forward to seeing them at work on the streets keeping our community safe."

The department has multiple K9 teams, including one dog that is specially trained to sniff out bombs.

Many of the canines are purchased through various grants.
