K-9 competition: N.O. officers and dogs show off their skills
By Judy Creekmore, Contributing writer
The St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff's Office recently hosted its first K-9 competition and training seminar for patrol, narcotics and explosives teams. The event was held on the St. John Airport grounds and at Riverside Academy in Reserve.
Handlers learned more about how to teach their dogs to find explosives, and how to watch their dog's reactions to unfamiliar smells. The seminar was organized by Sgt. Keith Brooks and presented by agents from the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Department.
