Can-Am’s K-9 Competition Tests Dogs’ Drug-Sniffing Skills
SAUK RAPIDS – It’s day three of the Can-Am Police-Fire Games’ K-9 contest, and today, the dogs are busy searching the Sauk Rapids Fire Hall for packages of drugs.
Brad Kadlec of the Benton County Sheriff’s Office says the event is a time trial, testing how quickly each dog can find two packages of either meth, marijuana, cocaine or heroin.
65 officers and dogs from as far away as Hubbard County in northern Minnesota are entered in the contest.
As of yesterday, the front-runner in the contest was Officer Rick Jennings from the Stillwater Correstional Facility. The champion will be announced today.
