MCSO Deputy Sam Ruiz and K-9 partner Thor sit in front of the flag that hangs in the Sheriff’s main office in Kingman. Deputy Ruiz and Thor, patrols Yucca and the surrounding areas including Boriana Mine Road that leads high into the Hualapai Mountains, Alamo Road south to Lake Alamo, Buckeye Estates and Santa Fe Estates. In addition to Team Ruiz/Thor, MCSO has four additional deputy/K-9 teams. They are: Deputy Keven Gunnoe and K-9 partner Bruno who patrols the Kingman area; Deputy Jeremy Felish and K-9 partner Brutus, who patrols the Arizona Strip area; Deputy John Wilson and K-9 partner Doc, who patrols Mohave Valley; and Deputy Kelly McCool and K-9 partner Chase, who patrols the Kingman area. Even though Lake Havasu City, Bullhead City and other areas within the county do not have deputy/K-9 teams assigned to them, the current members of the MCSO K-9 Program help out in those areas when needed.
