K9s4COPs presents the 2019 Texas K9 Officers Conference and Trials along with Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

The hard-working and elite K9 officers and their handlers will compete in categories including obstacle course, narcotics detection, explosive detection, and patrol. Attending officers will also earn continuing education credits during the classes and training exercises offered throughout the conference.

The Hard Dog/Fast Dog competition, demonstrating how to bring down a “bad guy,” is an additional $25 per K9 team – with a maximum of 50 teams. Hard Dog/Fast Dog takes place Friday morning, Oct. 25 from 7- 11 am at the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Academy field and is free and open to public spectators. K9s will be judged on suspect impact and speed.

"Not only are our handlers more equipped to do their job safely and more efficient, but our children's schools and our streets are safer."

- Deputy Clayton Marshall, Harris County Constable Precinct 4

"Having been a K9 handler for ten years, I know firsthand that there is no greater 'tool' that can be utilized in the line of duty. A life saving device that not only becomes our partner, but our best friend, that would give their lives to preserve ours. There is no stronger bond...and for that, I am extremely thankful."

- Deputy James Glaze, Harris County Sheriff’s Office

“If it were not for K9s4COPs, I would not be where I am today in my K-9 career. The impact that K9s4COPs has on the community cannot be measured. Thank you so much K9s4COPs for everything you have done for me and my fellow brothers in blue. My family thanks for you providing the best and bringing me home safe at night."

- Dep. Kenny Taylor, Harris County Sheriff Office

“People do not understand we would not have a career law enforcement without these 4-legged partners. Thank you K9s4COPs for allowing me such a valuable tool to complete my work each and every day. The bad guys are not grateful, but on behalf of me and my family we certainly are!”

- Deputy Larry Graves, Harris County Sheriff's Office
