The Arizona Law Enforcement Canine Association
(A.L.E.C.A.) in partnership with the Scottsdale, Mesa & Phoenix Police Departments,
is happy to announce that Scottsdale Healthcare is once again
joining us as a
proud sponsor of The Desert Dog Police K-9 Trials 2013. We would like to invite you to attend the DESERT DOG POLICE K-9 TRIALS,
that will be held at the newly renovated Scottsdale
Stadium, on April 13th & 14th, 2013.
Click here for more information on the stadium.
During the weekend
events, you will be able to observe many active Police, Military, Government and Security canine teams from around the nation competing in various field exercises. Most of the events will be timed for the purpose of a tiebreaker. Many of these teams will also be competing in various building exercises. Because the building, narcotics and explosives searches must take place in a controlled environment, we are unable to showcase this part of the competition. However, demonstrations will be performed during some of the intermissions. Vendors will be on site selling shirts, hats and other canine and police related products. Canine, SWAT and Fire Vehicles will be on display, as well as a Police Helicopter.
The events that the teams will be competing in include, Handler Protection, Tactical Building Search, Building Search, Agility / Obstacle course, Area Search, Narcotics and
