For the fifth time the Lawrenceburg Police Department the Indiana North American Police Work Dog Association Fall Workshop.
Lawrenceburg Police Captain Doug Taylor, who organized the training seminar, says 102 teams are participating. While many are from around Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky, other teams come from around the country, some travelling from as far as Vermont and Massachusetts.
K9 teams will be using various buildings and facilities around the city to hold their training. Practice vehicle searches will be performed at the Lawrenceburg City Garage while other classes are held at Agner Hall at the Dearborn County Fairgrounds.
On Thursday, teams will head to the Interstate 74 truck weighing station in West Harrison to practice sniffing around big rigs for narcotics.
A public demonstration of the amazing crime-fighting tricks those police dogs can do will be Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at Lawrenceburg High School’s football field. Two medical helicopters and the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office helicopter will be used during the demonstration.
