||Sgt. Steve Oliveira joined the department in 1994 and has been the Supervisor of the K-9 Unit since 2006. His partner Angus was a German Shepherd who was born in July of 2000 and imported from Czechoslovakia. Angus was a very vocal, high energy dog that loved nothing more than to come to work with his handler. You could hear Angus coming from a mile away as he rode with his head out the back window. |

Oliveira’s family. K-9 Angus was responsible for the apprehension of numerous suspects, making officer’s jobs safer and communities safer for the citizens of Sacramento.
Angus, passed away on April 1, 2011 and is interred at Sierra Hills Pet Cemetery in the Garden of Valor section with 42 other police and service K-9’s.
