K-9 General Graduates from first phase of training!

I am proud to announce that Officer Michael A. Westcott and his K-9 partner, General, graduated from the North American Police Work Dog Association on Friday, December 1, 2017. The intense training program certified our K-9 as a “Police Utility Dog” which provided certifications in Obedience, Article Search, Area Search, Building Search, Tracking and Aggression Control.

Officer Westcott and General have been assigned to the 4 p.m. to Midnight shift until they move onto their next phrase of training. They are scheduled to attending a “Drug Identification” training program in January in order to become certified in identifying narcotic substances. This is a 4 to 5 week program.
