White County Sheriff Department, with On Point K-9 organization, recently joined together and hosted a law enforcement K-9 training and competition event.

This year’s K-9 training and competition event saw K-9 teams from multiple law enforcement agencies, which included Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Indiana.

The On Point K-9 staff and White County Sheriff Department personnel focused their training seminars on several specialty areas, such as drug odor detection, tracking, building searches, and criminal apprehension. Training and competition exercises took place at multiple locations across White County and Sparta.

Awards and recognitions were presented on the final day of the event to multiple K-9 teams for their performance, capabilities, and perseverance during the weeklong event. Horton’s Quality K-9 equipment was also on hand for those in attendance to purchase a variety of USA made K-9 products.

White County Sheriff Department would like to thank several sponsors – Jackson Kayak, Orion Coolers, Walmart, Domino’s Pizza, and Bojangles’ Famous Chicken – for their donations of food and prizes for this year’s event.
