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.  It has also been the Association’s mission to help introduce and promote any state legislation that aids in the reliability and efficiency of the K9 / Handler team.

The objectives of the MPCA are:

  • 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.

We hope that you enjoy our website.  We are looking forward to this new avenue of providing information to our members and to the public.  If you have any questions about the Association or Police K9’s please don’t hesitate to contact us.

President / MPCA
