Duel In The Desert K-9 Competition

The Arizona Law Enforcement Canine Association in conjunction with the City of Goodyear and the Goodyear Police Department K-9 unit, have held the The Desert K-9 competition on April 16th and 17, 2016 at the Goodyear Baseball Stadium.

Desert K-9 Competition

 

During the weekend we were able to observe active Police, Military, Government and Security canine teams from around the nation competing in various field exercises. Most of the events were judged by time and points for rating purposes. From what we saw all the teams were winners.

We could not witness the building, narcotics and explosives searches because that had to be take place in a controlled environment. During the intermissions, vendors were selling shirts, hats and other canine and police related products. Canine, SWAT and Fire Vehicles were on display and a big hit with the kids. In addition, a dog training organization was demonstrating the capabilities of a well trained K-9 for the homeowner. One of those showing off is pictured above.

The events in the competition included: Handler Protection, Tactical Building Search, Building Search, Agility / Obstacle course, Area Search, Narcotics and Explosives.

The annual Desert K-9 Competition is not funded by public funds. All costs associated with this event must be raised through donations, sales of program ad space, or vendor booth fees. Admission is free but donations were gratefully accepted.

The Arizona Police K-9 Memorial was unveiled and dedicated on April 7th, 2006, at the Wesley Bolin Plaza. The purpose of the memorial is to honor Arizona Police K-9’s who gave their life in the line of duty.

You can visit the memorial at Wesley Bolin Plaza, which is located at  1700 West Washington Street, at the corner of 17th Avenue, Phoenix, Arizona. Comments or feedback on the memorial are welcome regarding the Memorial.
