Nick Henderson of the Evansville Police Department said working with the K-9 Unit is the best job in the force.
The Evansville K-9 Unit participated in the Evansville Region Canine Certification and Field Trials last month and did very well, Henderson said. At the trials, the dogs were tested on obedience, search work, agility and their ability to properly apprehend.
Jason Thomas and his canine, Bobi, finished first place overall out of the 35 individual teams competing. Zach Elfreich and K-9 Axel finished a close second to Thomas. Two other officers and K-9s took 5th and 7th place.
