During the week of September 30 – October 4, 2013, the Lakeland Police Department K9 Unit competed in the USPCA National Patrol Dog 1 Trials just outside of the nation’s capital. For a second year in a row, the K9 Unit won and retained the title of National Champions. In addition to this great achievement, Officer Ted Sealey and K9 Bruno retain their title of “Top Patrol Dog” in the nation.
The top K9 team in the nation belongs to:
· Officer Aaron Peterman and K9 Charief
· Officer Rob Manrow and K9 Quanto
· Officer Ted Sealey and K9 Bruno
· Officer Chad Whitaker and K9 Bane
· Officer Jeff Barrett and K9 Echo (Team Leader/alternate)
The Lakeland Police Department is very proud of all the officers who represent our department not only in competitions, but day to day in their regular duties protecting our community. To become this proficient at their jobs at this level requires dedication and commitment to excellence.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE LPD K9 UNIT!!!!
