MANY OF THE CANINES PARTICIPATING ALSO ARE TRAINED IN PROTECTION FOR OFFICERS ON PATROL. ONE OF THE ROCHESTER K-9 UNIT OFFICERS THERE PRAISED THE IMPORTANCE OF TRAINING EXERSICES LIKE THESE. ((WIPE SOT)) "WE CAN DO A LOT OF TRAINING IN THE CITY OF ROCHESTER, BUT THIS IS NICE TO WORK WITH THE DIFFERENT AGENCIES AND TRY DIFFERENT THINGS WE DON'T NORMALLY DO. SO, I WOULD SAY IT'S PRETTY IMPORTANT. I THINK ALL K-9 OFFICERS SHOULD GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO COME OUT HERE AND DO THIS." THE CANINE TEAMS WILL FINISH UP THEIR WEEK OF TRAINING TOMORROW.
