Canine Officers Brian McCarthy and Benjamin Enerson from the Minnesota Correctional Facility (MCF)-Stillwater competed in the United States Police Canine Association Region 12 Narcotics Trial held in Worthington last March.

More than 60 canines and handlers from Minnesota competed in the event.

McCarthy and his K-9 partner participated in the vehicle search category, which consisted of five vehicle searches with two “hides” and three room searches with two hides. McCarthy and his partner completed the category with the fastest time, scored a perfect 100 points, and received 1st place.

Officer Enerson and his K-9 partner scored 199 out of 200 points in the vehicle and room search categories and received 2nd place overall during the competition.
