Not simply a legal update session. This class takes a dynamic and interactive approach to educating police canine handlers and supervisors on current criminal and civil laws which govern the performance of their duties.

Students leave with a better appreciation of the links among their job performance, community acceptance and the development of the laws they operate under.
