Officer Adam Hackstedt and Drug Detection Canine Max
In 2007 the Corvallis Police Department implemented the Drug Detection Canine Program to assist with locating illegal drugs during calls for service.
Officer Adam Hackstedt and Canine Max make up the drug detection canine program. Officer Hackstedt was selected as the Drug Detection K9 handler in February, 2015. He has worked as a police officer with the City of Corvallis for six years and is currently also assigned as a Police Training Officer. He serves the department as a Drug Recognition Expert and also as a Standardized Field Sobriety Test instructor.
Max is a two year old purebred black labrador who joined the Department in March 2015. Officer Hackstedt and Max attended a five week entry level Drug Recognition Team Handler Development Course, and on May 22, 2015 the team passed the Oregon Police Canine Association (OPCA) Detection Canine Standards and became a certified team.
Max is trained to search buildings, vehicles, parcels and open areas for the odors of controlled substances *Heroin, Methamphetamine, and Cocaine). Officer Hackstedt and Max must train a minimum of 16 hours each month to maintain their proficiency.
