The Vegas Tourist invites you to attend the 19th annual Las Vegas Police K-9 Trials, at the Orleans Arena, this Sunday October 25. This is an annual event hosted to by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department‘s K-9 unit has been in operation since 1961. The K-9 Unit has twenty-one officers, and twenty Patrol Dogs. These dogs are trained to locate human scent, whether that it is scent from suspects, people who are lost, or evidence that a suspect may have thrown away during a chase.
Patrol Dog breeds include the German Shepherd, the Dutch Sheppard, and the Belgian Malinois’. The K-9 Unit also has fifteen detection dogs, comprised of nine Narcotic Detector Dogs and six Explosive Detector Dogs. Detection Dog breeds include the Springer Spaniels and Labrador Retrievers.
Since 2000, each Handler in the K-9 Unit has two dogs, a Patrol Dog and a Detection Dog. This allows more access to Patrol Dogs, Explosive Detector Dogs, as well as having even greater access to Narcotic Detector Dogs.
Come on out and learn what makes a K-9 and his partner a force to be respected and honored in today’s society.
