Police K9 Law Seminar May 11, 2017

FREE to USPCA members, members of their agency staff, and legal team. CLASS OBJECTIVES AND FEATURES:

Not simply a legal update session.

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