Senior Trooper Chris Richey and his K-9 partner were named top overall team at a recent competition.

A local Indiana State Police officer and his K-9 were top dog at a recent competition.

Senior Trooper Chris Richey of Versailles and his partner, Rayner, were recently named “Top Overall K-9 Team” after a two day competition in Tennessee. Richey and Rayner competed against 25 other law enforcement groups from the Midwest and were in categories of patrol and narcotics.

Richey and Rayner finished first in patrol and second in narcotics, making them the top overall team.

The Patrol Competition was judged on tactics, officer safety, proper K-9 deployment, speed, and accuracy while the Narcotics Competition was judged on accuracy, speed and overall effectiveness of the team.

“Although this was a competition it was also a time to network with other agencies and K-9 handlers from other parts of the country,” Trooper Richey said. “It was a great venue to learn other officer’s tactics and hopefully pass on to younger officers what I have learned during my 8 years as a K-9 handler.”

Richey and Rayner has been team since October 2012.
