(PORT HURON, MI) – Region 19 of the United States Police Canine Association is a chapter of the national United States Police Canine Association, and includes seven member policing agencies from southwestern Ontario. The purpose of USPCS is to be Ever Striving for the Betterment of all Police K-9.
From May 21 through 24, USPCA conducted Detector Dog and Tracking Trials in Port Huron, MI. CKPS Constable Rick Bertok and his K9 partner Arry competed in the trials and placed first in the tracking division.
Arry joined the Chatham-Kent Police Service and successfully completed a 15 week training course in Windsor before going on duty in September 2013. In his time with CKPS, Arry has caught crooks, assisted on drug busts, tracked a driver who fled the scene of a collision, and most recently located a man who was attempting to elude police.
Congratulations to Arry and Constable Bertok on the win.
