PNWK9 Comes to Columbia Rural Electric Association

Columbia Rural Electric Association (REA) was honored to host the Pacific Northwest k9 Association's training conference last month!

The Pacific Northwest Police Detection Dog Association held its 2022 PNWK9 training conference in Walla Walla last month.

Officers from all around the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia, along with their narcotics- and explosives-detecting K9 counterparts, train for a week, not only with their dogs but in the classroom as well, learning about canine behavior and other topics associated with K9 police work. The meetings are designed to prep the canine officers’ handlers for their certification testing, one of the most rigorous and recognized certifications in U.S. Law Enforcement.

Good luck, officers! Thank you for what you do!
