Clarkstown Police Officer K9 Taz has a lot to bark about after winning first place in the United States Police Canine Association Region 7 Narcotics Certification on Tuesday in Yonkers.

During the event Officer Michael Keane and Taz took part in a narcotics search test and placed first overall with a perfect score. Taz beat out 21 other K9’s from the region.

Both he and Keane will now represent Region 7 in the national competition being held in Raleigh, N.C.

The United States Police Canine Association is the largest and oldest active organization of its kind. The purpose of the association is to help unite law enforcement agencies that use a K9 as an aid in the prevention and detection of crime.

The group also strives to promote friendship between the handlers, to establish a minimum working standard, and as a way to exchange advanced techniques of training work.
