We are excited to announce that Officer Dylan Detwiler and K-9 Bosco have completed Narcotics Detection Courses through @adlerhorstk9 

The training course included training K-9 Bosco to detect cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and other substances. The training also included exposing K-9 Bosco to various searches and locations, utilizing open areas, vehicles, buildings, parcels, luggage, etc., to conceal the target odor. 

We are excited to reintroduce Narcotics Detection capabilities to our K-9 Unit.

Here is a behind behind-the-scenes look at Officer Guzman’s Field Training at the Hemet Police Department 🚔
When a Police Officer is hired and has graduated from the Academy, additional training is still needed to succeed out in the field. An assigned Field Training Officer takes the newly hired Officer and guides him through Officer Safety and Tactics, interpretation of the law, reporting writing/evidence handling, and more. 
Join us in wishing Officer Guzman continued success!

Rain continues to be in our forecast through next week 🚔🌧️

Here are some helpful tips to follow when driving in the rain:

• Turn on your headlights and wipers
• Check your tires and wipers and make sure they are in good condition
•  Stay in the center lanes as puddles typically form on the shoulder and median
• Slow down when driving in unfavorable weather and allow for extra time to get to your destination
• Avoid braking suddenly and leave a few car lengths between you and the vehicle in front of you.
