About the Seminar

A two-day seminar covering multiple topics related to K9 deployments designed to increase survivability for the K9, the handler, and fellow Officers. Each day will begin with several hours of classroom instruction, followed by 10 reality-based scenarios at various locations. Participants will receive a packet with more information about groups and locations on Wednesday afternoon after registration.  Each scenario is unique and will test the handlers decision-making abilities, while also helping to develop the canine’s confidence and experience in “high liability, low-frequency” deployments. NPCA will also be hosting certifications for Patrol, EOD and Narcotics during the seminar week.

Handlers looking to complete a certification while in attendance will be eligible to book rooms at the host hotel, Quality Inn at 801 N. Beeline for the a discounted rate.


Who Should Attend

All current, certified Law Enforcement Canine Handlers. This is a scenario-based seminar that will include your police K9 and all equipment you carry on-duty. Please come with your assigned police vehicle prepared to deploy your K9.
