JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Several Buckrailers have asked, “What’s with all the police activity in town?” Around the Elk Refuge and in other locations, law enforcement units have been conducting exercises that have peaked public interest.
It’s all part of the 16th Annual National Police Canine Association seminar and certification here in Jackson Hole this week. The event is hosted by the Teton County Sheriff’s Office.
It is record attendance this year, with 55 K9 units making the trip. Participating teams include federal, state, county, and municipal agencies from Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming. The K-9 teams are training in tracking, criminal apprehension, explosives detection, and drug detection.
