Newark PD K-9 Unit competes in Police Dog Trials

Submitted By Newark PD

Congratulations to our K-9 Unit for their recent performance in the 30th annual Witmer-Tyson K-9 trials. This event gave officers and their K-9 partners the chance to train and exhibit just how skilled they are as a team. They demonstrated what they're capable of doing under simulated street encounters.

Officer Mavrakis and K-9 ÒAresÓ and Officer Jackman and K-9 ÒEliotÓ, along with 24 other Bay Area K-9 teams, participated in this two day competition which included four categories: Obedience, Obstacles, Protection, and Searching. Officer Mavrakis and ÒAresÓ followed up last year's 2nd place overall finish in the novice class with a very impressive 1st place finish in "Protection" and a tie for 4th in "Searching" in the veteran class. This is a very tough competition and both teams represented NPD well, which reflects their commitment to the Department and to training their K-9's.

Special thanks to retired Sergeant Al Lewis and Sergeant Ray Hoppe for all of their hard work and training in preparation for the competition.
