The Missouri Police Canine Association was formed in 1996 to help canine teams excel in the use of their canines by providing training and an avenue to certify their team. I would like to thank past President Gary White and past Treasurer Mike Ervin for their efforts and dedication to the organization these past years.

As we usher in a new executive board, our objectives of the MPCA remain the same:

  • To unite and assist all law enforcement agencies in the training and continued improvements of all police work dogs.
  • To establish a working standard for all police work dogs, handlers and trainers through an accreditation program.
  • To provide educational material through publications, visual aids and training seminars.
  • To promote and improve the image of the police work dog in the law enforcement community as well as within the general public.

This organization belongs to its members, and we the executive board are here to serve them and their canine partners. If there are any questions regarding the Missouri Police Canine Association, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Be safe,

Mike Perkins
Missouri Police Canine Association
