K-9 Brutus and Award

LCPD K-9 Brutus with his award from the USPCA National K-9 Drug Detector Trials.

Last week, Officer Casey Rossman and K-9 Brutus competed in the United States Police Canine Association (USPCA) National Drug Detector Trails held in Edina, MN. Officer Rossman and K-9 Brutus competed with 96 of the nation’s best K-9 teams from as far as California, Texas, and even the CIA.  As indicated on the USPCA website, one of their main objectives is to, “establish a minimum working standard, and improve the abilities of the canine in police work, thereby rendering better service to the community.”

Overall, Officer Rossman and Brutus finished 19th with a total score of 973.5 out of 1000 possible points – 486.5 / 500 points for Room Searches and 487 / 500 points for Vehicle Sniffs.  Besides receiving an award for their performance in the trials, Officer Rossman and K-9 Brutus received national certification.

Congratulations to Officer Rossman and Brutus for their hard work!
