Canine Supervision 365 is a 3-day (24 hours) comprehensive interactive course designed and instructed by Sergeant Bill Lewis II (Retired) and Sergeant Gregg Tawney (Retired) for K9 supervisors to address liability and supervision of programs associated with patrol dogs tasked primarily to locate suspects and secondarily assist in the apprehension of suspects. Supervision of a law enforcement K9 unit nowadays is a full-time responsibility even when shared among others and it is required 365 days of the year.
