K-9 Demo Request
Police Work Dog Association Inc. will make every effort
to provide a C.P.W.D.A. K-9 Team demo for your school or
event, depending on date, time and availability of one of our many
K-9 Teams. We require that you provide us with all the details,
including advance notice, so appropriate dates can be scheduled.
Emergencies arise, and K-9 teams may have to cancel any engagement
to assist their community or other communities in their work. If
this occurs, we apologize and another date may be arranged.
These K-9 demos are
designed to portray the skill involved and the work performed by the
K-9 teams on a daily basis, plus give both children and adults an
opportunity to gain knowledge and ask questions about the K-9 Unit.
Basic obedience, agility, article search, simulated criminal
apprehension and mock narcotic searches are conducted free of
charge. The one-on-one interaction encourages children to build
trust toward officers and to learn drug awareness. The value of
these exhibitions has proved immeasurable for everyone.
Demonstrations have been provided in schools, written about in
newspapers, shown on television, and incorporated in meetings
with professional organizations and law enforcement entities.
Occasionally, we will have a photographer taking
pictures of the children with the K-9'S, and they may be posted on our web
site. Also, if a teacher or parent has taken a nice photo, it may be submitted to us for consideration for listing on the web site.
These K-9'S are
remarkable and provide extraordinary value to the lives of
thousands. C.P.W.D.A. K-9 teams perform approximately 400
demonstrations a year for communities in Connecticut. The K-9
Program continues to promote an atmosphere of community awareness
and positive public relations through these K-9 demonstrations and
are absolutely free.
