SBPD K-9 officer Jed Combs and RIki

Eight K-9 handlers Thursday are completing a four day training seminar hosted by the Scottsbluff Police Department where they will get extra time with their dogs and certification if they finish the necessary steps.

Jed Combs is the K-9 handler with the Scottsbluff Police department and he says narcotics and patrol certification can be achieved during the seminar.

Combs and his dog Riki are important pieces of the Scottsbluff Police effort, as they work in narcotics detection, criminal apprehension, evidence recovery and tracking.

Officers from the State Patrol, Scotts Bluff County Sheriff's office Gering, Alliance, Valentine, and Bridgeport are taking part in the training this week. The seminar is being held at the YMCA's Trails West Camp
