“K9 Officers was formed by Rocky and Shannon Smith to provide assistance to Law Enforcement Departments in obtaining K9s.
K9 Officers is a non-profit organization designed to raise funds to donate police K9s, handler training and the necessary equipment for a K9 to perform their job effectively and safely.
This total package provides the department the optimum chance for success with their new K9 officer. We also provide support to the handler and K9s we donate throughout the K9's lifetime.”
At the culmination of the event, Senior Handler Dillon Condetti finished in 1st Place for the Law Enforcement Division of the competition.
