Columbia County initially began a K-9 unit in 1989 but it only remained until 1990 when then Deputy Mark Hahn along with K-9 partner Greif left employment with Columbia County to be a K-9 trainer at the Alabama Canine Law Enforcement Officers Training Center. It was not until 1995 the current K-9 program began at Columbia County. Deputy Hahn and his German Shepherd partner Greif returned to Wisconsin in 1991 and served the Portage Police Department from 1992 to 1995.
