On 4/20/2018 Sgt. Jen Walsh and Sgt. John Zaccari attended the USPCA K9 Narcotics Certification trials held in Chelmsford Ma. The USPCA is a nationally recognized association with extremely high standards. These standards are used throughout the United States to judge and certify K9 Narcotics teams. Although this is not a required certification Sgt. Walsh and Sgt. Zaccari took it upon themselves to train for and obtain this certification on their own.

Walsh finished the trial with a score of 199.67 out of a possible 200 points to finish in 1st place, and Sgt. Zaccari scored 198.00 to finish in 4th place. We commend you both on your motivation and drive to represent our K9 unit with such success!!
