Police K-9 teams compete in regional contest

Posted: Updated:
FRANKLIN, TN (WSMV) -

Some four-legged police officers are competing this week for the title "top dog."

Franklin police and the Williamson County Sheriff's Office are hosting trials for the Police Canine Association, and K-9 teams from across Middle Tennessee are taking part.

The animals can be certified in obedience, agility, scent work and apprehending suspects.

"It's turned into a competition, and every year we come to these and enjoy the trophy presentations at the very end. And we still get certificates so we can show off in court also," said Franklin police Officer Brett Spivy.

Officers say most of the dogs in the competition already belong to the police force and are seeking their re-certification.
