On Saturday, August 8, the Washington County Sheriff's Office held its fifth annual K-9 Trials competition. At this event, area police dogs and their handlers competed against one another for bragging rights and a first place trophy. Lake Oswego Police Officer Josh Day and K-9 Charger attended this competition and showed everyone how it’s done, taking first place overall. The K-9 competitions included:
- Area Searches for Suspects and Evidence
- Extraction of Suspect from Vehicle
- Handler (Officer) Protection
LOPD has two K-9 Teams. Because of a paw injury, K-9 Kai and his handler, Officer Bryan McMahon, were unable to compete.
Officer Josh Day and K-9 Charger’s win confirms what LOPD has known for some time, that LOPD’s K-9 Teams are among the very best in the state!
