Bloodhound Tracking Team


The Horry County Police Department's Bloodhound Tracking Team (BTT) is a specialized tactical team consisting of eight officers and four dogs. The team is on call 24/7 to assist the police department and other agencies with fleeing felons, lost or missing children, Alzheimers patients, and evidence recovery.

Each member is cross-trained in dog handling, man tracking, and both rural and urban tactical skills and movement.

The team has 4 purebred bloodhounds. Red, Bell, and Babe are littermates and have been with the department for approximately 5 years. Their mother was a cadaver dog that worked at the World Trade Center during the 9-11 aftermath. The fourth bloodhound, Dru, has been working with the department for 4 years.

The bloodhounds extraordinary sense of smell and the training of the BTT officers has led to multiple captures of dangerous felons and the safe recovery of multiple missing/lost children and elderly persons.
