RALEIGH, N.C. (April 24) - Wake Tech Community College hosted training exercises for local police K-9 (police dog) units on Tuesday, April 23, and Wednesday, April 24. The goal of the two-day event was to prepare police K-9 teams to safely and effectively handle high-risk situations like those they might face on the street. The advanced, reality-based training included suspect apprehension, tracking and building search.

Ten agencies from across the state participated in the class, including the City of Raleigh Police Department, Cary Police, Clayton Police, Holly Springs Police, Garner Police, Knightdale Police, Pitt County Sheriff’s Office, Burlington Police, Wilson Police, and Winston-Salem Police. The training began with classroom instruction at Wake Tech’s Public Safety Education Campus and moved to Dorothea Dix in Raleigh for hands-on, practical scenarios.

“Like their human partners, police dogs patrol our streets and save lives,” said Angela Mizelle, Dean of Wake Tech’s Public Safety Training. “Wake Tech was thrilled to host this class. The college strives to provide the highest quality training to all law enforcement personnel, with the goal of exceeding expectations and honoring the public trust.”

The training was provided by Kevin Beck, president of Enforcement K9, Inc, based in Wilmington. Beck and his staff are some of the most experienced and highly-trained police K-9 trainers in the state.
