Highway Patrol happy to receive K9 training in Jackson last week

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Wyoming Highway Patrol K-9 program recently participated in National Police Canine Association (NPCA) training and certification in Jackson, Wyoming. The training took place in town May 9-12. Highway Patrol sent 10 narcotics dogs and their handlers, along with two explosives canines and their handlers.

The training included real life scenarios such as mock traffic stops with vehicles containing narcotics as well as mock encounters that had no contraband present. These mock scenarios also took place in several businesses in the Jackson area that opened up their facilities for the training. The cooperation with the businesses also provided an excellent opportunity for the community to see how the WHP K-9 handlers and their partners perform while being able to interact with troopers to ask questions about the agency.
