The Horn Lake Police Department along with the Southaven Police Department will be hosting their annual 10 week 400 hour basic K9 course starting on January 09, 2017 through March 16, 2017.
The class is open to dual and single purpose K9 teams. Some skills taught are detection (either narcotic or explosives), control, tracking, area search, evidence recovery, K9 legal updates (for both detection and patrol), K9 first aid, decoy work, criminal apprehension, etc.
We work hard to provide each team with real life based scenario training to ensure they are ready to hit the streets when they come back to your agency.
The week following graduation the teams will need to attend a three day seminar March 21, 22, and 23 which is hosted by the Mississippi Law Enforcement Officers Association (MLEOA). While at the seminar the K9 teams will be certified in patrol and/or detection with the National Narcotics Detector Dog Association (NNDDA).
If your agency is interested in attending or have any questions about the class please contact Lynn Brown at 662-404-3965.
