RCMP officers in camoflage part of practice

It was training day for Dawson Creek Police Dog Services.

“The dog section lays a track for their service dog to follow, so that the dog can keep their skills up to date and in good practice,” says Cst. Jaime Ekkel.

A number of residents had noted seeing the officers in camouflage last Tuesday, including Dawson Creek resident Diane Horseman, who says RCMP were on her front lawn.

“The training should not interfere with any local residents, however, sometimes the handlers may track where there are other distractions, such as people, animals, and vehicles so that the dog can get used to such distractions,” added Ekkel.
