K9 Team Trials

The awards for the 20th Annual Riverside Sheriff's Association K9 Trials were presented at the Nellie Weaver banquet hall Saturday night, November 7th, 2015. The Trials were supported by the Riverside Sheriff's Association and hosted by the City of Norco. The award presentation followed a very successful competition at the George Ingalls Equestrian Center in Norco.

During the competition handlers and their canine partners from the U.S. Military, Canada down to Mexico, negotiated a series of challenges common to the use of police service dogs. Some of the challenges included the detection of narcotics, handler protection and canine discipline. The panel of judges consisted of police canine trainers based on the west coast; from California, Oregon and Nevada, bringing their decades of experience to bear on the competition.

Officer James Ledogar and canine partner Reno of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department took home the coveted Top Dog award for the second year in a row. Officer Ledogar was presented his individual award, as well as the traveling trophy to be safeguarded by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department until the 2016 RSA K9 Trial competition.
