Jango, Maverick, Memphis, Ellis, Kash, Danno and Stryker were just some of the Service dogs that took the stage alongside officers. 

The dogs and officers demonstrated several tactics used by police when working with dogs such as explosive detection, article search, narcotics detection, apprehension, recalls and searches for people.
