SPOKANE, Wash. -

The Spokane Police Department K-9 Unit is asking the commercial community of Spokane for help on additional training sites to enhance and test the performance of their four legged partners.

Every week the Spokane Police Department K-9 Unit utilizes several businesses in the city as training locations to increase performance from their K-9 partners. The Unit is seeking additional locations to help challenge the dogs as well as the handlers. The unit focuses on reality based training as a way to improve the abilities of the police dogs. Working in real life locations is the best way to achieve this.

The commercial sites should be large enough to accommodate several training opportunities for the K-9's and should be closed for business during night time hours.

For years locations such as, Brown Building Supply, Oxarc, White's Boots and Wild Rose Graphics, have provided the Spokane Police K-9 Unit unique and realistic locations to train. The unit is hoping to expand on these locations in order to provide better service to the public.

If interested please call the Spokane Police K-9 Unit at (509) 625-4116.

This is an excellent example on how the community can work with the Police Department to provide the best service possible to our citizens. Although down sized, the SPD K-9 Unit has always been committed to the community and fellow officers by providing professional response at the highest standards.
