Training & Certification
Teams regularly train in obedience, apprehension, and narcotic work, in addition to tracking, and case law. All are certified for narcotics detection and apprehension through K9 Services in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Twice a year they return to Green Bay for certification in Patrol work. The training is ongoing, with a daily routine to keep the dogs fit and handler skills sharp. Additionally, teams also attend the Wisconsin K-9 Handlers Association conference annually to remain current in tactics and case law.
