K9 Dice Hits the Streets

In the fall of this year the Hillsboro PD hosted and instructed a basic Patrol K9 Academy for outside agencies in conjunction with a basic Narcotics K9 Academy for our own K9 Dice.  

We are happy to say that today all teams passed a certification with North American Police Working Dog Association. 

Montpelier, Vermont Officer Goslin and K9 Atlas and Newbury, NH Officer Fisher and K9 Nash are newly certified teams in patrol tasks such as obedience, article search, tracking, and apprehension.

Hillsboro Police K9 Dice and Officer Gallant certified in narcotics detection.

In addition to instructing the K9s Academy over the fall as the trainer, Hillsboro Police Sergeant Hodgen also re-certified in Patrol and Narcotics detection today with K9 Gibbs.
