Sac County Sheriff's Deputy Jonathan Meyer and his K-9 partner Petey last week re-certified with the United States Police Canine Association in narcotics detection.

Meyer and Petey were awarded the 2nd place trophy for having the second fastest time in vehicle searches. Teams were required to pass two tests, which are vehicle searches and room searches. Vehicle searches consist of two hides on five vehicles, and room searches have three rooms with two hides. The K-9 must check all five vehicles and search all three rooms; and accurately indicate to the handler where the drugs are located.

57 teams competed in the certification process.
