VALDOSTA,Ga (WALB) – The Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office hosted a K-9 presentation this year.
Over 100 dogs from throughout the United States revealed the neighborhood how they browse, spot and capture Thursday.
Lowndes High Martin Stadium invited officers from all over the country with their K-9 ′ s., flashing their lights and sirens and all set to reveal what they’re trained and now nationally licensed to do.
“The community has been bent over backward to make sure we had this done. We want to thank them for showing us the support that they did and in return, we want to show them what we do during the week,” stated Hebert Bennett, Lieutenant ofLowndes County Sheriffs Department “We’ll go through each exercise that we do and then we do a couple of extra things to liven up the crowd. So it’s basically free of charge. Thank you for what you’ve done for us and in return, we want to show you our support.”
This is the very first time Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office has actually ever hosted a presentation. They stated it’s as crucial as any other presentation due to the fact that K-9 handlers should fulfill specific requirements.
“There are several organizations that will certify you as a K-9 handler. This is the longest-tenured one. It’s the United States Police K-9 Association,” Bennett stated.
They integrated 2 nationwide accreditations which is what made the occasion so huge.
“To even get to this point, this is the National certification. So, you would have had to regionally certify also which we did a few months ago in Florida. So just showing the public that we are a little bit better than the average requirement,” Bennett stated.
Bennett included that the dogs take pleasure in finding out brand-new things and doing their tasks.
“What happens in the certification is, we do everything that’s required in our police work. Examples, obedience, running, jumping, man detection and apprehension of course. And then on the detection side of it, we do explosives, narcotics, arson,” Bennett stated.
