K-9 Units Train at 171st

The 171st Air Refueling Wing, located near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, provides a secure location for local law enforcement agencies to train their K-9 units, August 28, 2013. Beaver County, Center Township, Findlay Township and Scott Township Police Departments attended. K-9 units must continuously train on building, vehicle, area, and evidence searches to fulfill training requirements. Training also includes apprehension, narcotic detection, tracking scenarios, and handler protection. Having a secure, controlled location is important for efficient training and for the safety of the dogs. In addition to fulfilling training requirements, this combined effort also allows the 171st and local law enforcement agencies the ability to share ideas and training techniques in order to better serve the community and the commonwealth (U.S. Air National Guard Photo by Tech.
