K9 Teams Nationwide Converge For Training in Titusville
Law Enforcement teams from across the country assembled in Titusville at the American Police Hall of Fame on December 5th through December 9th for the 2016 North American Police Work Dog Association Florida State Workshop.
The 95 K9 teams included Law Enforcement and Civilian Search and Rescue teams from all over the United States.
Workshop organizers hosted practical training sessions from Master Trainers and attendees also received expert information from nationally recognized speakers.
Teams received training and certifications in the areas of Narcotics, Cadaver, Explosives, Tracking and Trailing, Building and Area Search and Aggression Control, and Police Utility Dog.
This training was made possible by the Titusville Police Department, Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, North American Police Work Dog Association (NAPWDA), National Narcotics Detector Dog Association (NNDDA) and Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).
“This week of intense and proactive hands on training is invaluable for Law Enforcement K9 teams and Civilian Search and Rescue teams alike”, said Titusville Police K9 Team Leader Lieutenant Chris DeLoach. “After receiving their annual certifications, these teams return to their local jurisdictions and are an integral part of our local, state, and national security” added DeLoach.
