Class participants learned selection of a handler and dog, capabilities and deployments, liability, and supervision and support of your K-9 unit. Brett explained how his department, and several other large agencies, have employed K-9's to search ahead of their tactical teams during high-risk searches improving officer safety, and how deploying K-9's during high risk situations resulted in a de-escalation of the situation increasing officer safety.
Thanks to all Law Enforcement agencies that attended class and participated.
