The Lakeway Police Department K-9 Program was established in 2013 with the addition of K-9 "Orka", who was donated to the department by the Austin Police Department.  From that point, the program was expanded with the addition of K-9 "Cory" who was purchased and trained with the financial assistance of the Lakeway Police Foundation.  Both K-9s and their respective handlers were trained and certified by the National Narcotics Detector Dog Association in the detection of various narcotics including, but not limited to: cocain, marijuana, methamphetamine, and heroin.  The K-9s also received basic training in tracking, which provided LPD with the ability to track/search for fleeing fugitives and missing persons.

Currently, only K-9 "Cory" remains, as K-9 "Orka" was recently retired after a long and successful law enforcement tenure.  K-9 "Cory" is assigned to Patrol Officer Sheldon Banta who, in addition to normal patrol functions, is responsible for seeking out those who are in possession of illicit narcotics and/or drug paraphernalia in Lakeway.  K-9 "Cory" and her handler are also tasked with public appearances at local schools and other community events in the Lake Travis area.
