President’s Message

Winter 2017

Hello to my fellow NAPCH members,

Alpena 2017 is in the record books. There were over 331 Teams that attended a very successful training Seminar. There were 20 training sites operating at one time each and every day. The Master Trainers and Trainers had to work extra hard to keep all of the participants busy and provide expertise in their fields. NAPCH conducted over 100 certifications during the Seminar and assisted in problem solving where members needed assistance. I want to give congratulations to MT Bill Artress and MT Steven Heater for receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award. Check out the website Award Section for all of NAPCH members that received recognition. The membership paid tribute at the opening ceremony to Wayne State Officer Colin Rose who gave the ultimate sacrifice. (See the tribute on Facebook and this website).

I am asking all NAPCH members to keep in touch with us either on Facebook or through the website of any good recognition you may have or another member has. Also please update any information that will assist us in getting in contact with you as quite a few addresses and emails are not current.

Finally as the Holidays approach and the year 2017 comes to an end please remember that the job you are doing is a necessity in keeping all citizens safe. May you, your family, and K9 partner have a safe and Merry Christmas!

Keep your training above a minimum standard and be prepared!

– Terry Foley (President)
