AUTHORS: Spc. Robert Sterling, VT State Game Warden and K-9 Crockett

ABSTRACT. The K-9 is a powerful tool for Game Wardens to help apprehend poachers, locate evidence and save lives.  K-9 teams are trained to detect gun powder and residue, evidence, and track people, both lost and fleeing.  Learn how these K-9s are used and initially trained to perform these tasks. See how K-9s are deployed in public outreach, to help bridge the gap between Law Enforcement, State agencies and the public we serve.  Warden Sterling will explain the value in having a Warden K-9 program in your agency and the challenges associated with it.  

Warden Sterling and K-9 Crockett will demonstrate how a team works together.  They will locate evidence, demonstrate current techniques in training and display equipment currently used by Vermont K-9s.
