As a crucial pillar of the policing ecosystem, K9 teams have become indispensable units for police forces saving them several operational man-hours and driving faster identification of trafficked goods, psychotropic substances, and criminals. Thanks to their impressive olfactory capabilities, they serve on a myriad of critical missions supporting police forces to take down suspects whilst protecting officers from harm.


Gathering international canine experts, the K9 Conference is a unique platform for senior experts from police forces to explore and demonstrate proven training and canine handling strategies to support law enforcement officers and gain insights into the latest technologies that can augment K9 training programmes, enhance their olfactory senses
and drive the proper breeding of canines for police operations.
