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 Mike Perkins for his service to our Organization over the past few years. Congratulations to Chris Smith for becoming our Vice President and welcome aboard to Paul Gash our new Treasurer. We hope to make some positive changes in the near future but our objectives of the MPCA will 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 question or have ideas on how we can make this organization stronger please contact us.

Thanks for all you do and be safe,

Scott Hedger
Missouri Police Canine Association
