Police dogs and their handlers from throughout the San Gabriel Valley and beyond tried out Thursday to join an elite national organization of police K-9 teams.

The West Covina Police Department hosted certification trials for the National Police Canine Association at Galster Park. Being a member of the association indicates the dog and handler have demonstrated the highest levels of proficiency.

Thursday’s trials included tests in general obedience, suspect apprehension and suspect searches, West Covina police Sgt. Pat Benschop explained.
