K-9 Supervisor Course
PURPOSE & INTRODUCTION
The K-9FTO Supervisor course is designed for administrators, managers and supervisors of police K-9 units and programs. This course of training will give you the knowledge and confidence needed to effectively manage, and maintain an efficient and productive K-9 program. K-9FTO prides itself on providing a comprehensive curriculum and training guide course, built on the foundation of many years of law enforcement officer and K-9 training and experiences.
A K-9 team is often considered on of the most dangerous positions in law enforcement, and equally, one of the highest liability positions in law enforcement. K-9 unit supervisors are responsible for every facet of the unit, and are equally liable in some cases for the wrong doings of the K-9 teams.
Often, many K-9 supervisors (appointed or volunteered) do not a have a clear understanding of what their expectations, role and responsibilities really are which can lead to failure of the K-9 program after improper utilization incidents in the field, liability and ineffectiveness.
It is imperative that K-9 Supervisor receives specialized training in the field they are asked to supervise. It is equally imperative that the supervisor knows the proper utilization of the K-9, training requirements, care, maintenance and which costs are proper and expected.
Nationwide, a large majority of K-9 trainers lack actual law enforcement experience. In short, this means they lack the perspective needed to effectively train a law enforcement K-9 handler, in a manner that will appropriately prioritize the safety of the K-9 team, and minimize liability to the department.
K-9FTO Supervisor Course will give you the must have training, knowledge and confidence you need.
