The awards for the 17th Annual Riverside Sheriff Association K9 Trials were presented at the Villa Portofino Clubhouse in Palm Desert on Saturday night, November 3rd, 2012. The trials were supported by the Riverside Sheriff’s Association and hosted by the City of Palm Desert and Palm Desert Police Department. The award presentation followed a very successful competition at Palm Desert High School.

During the competition handlers and their canine partners 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 obedience. The panel of judges are police canine trainers based on the west coast throughout California, and Nevada, together they brought decades of experience to bear on the competition.

Officer James Smith and canine partner Nero of the Oceanside Police Department took home the Top Dog award for Saturday’s Patrol Competition.
