Four local K-9 teams joined forces to show off their impressive skills.

It was all part of the 2nd Annual Operation K-9 at Superior’s Amsoil Center Thursday.

Teams from Duluth and Superior Police Departments and St. Louis and Douglas County Sheriff’s Offices took part.

Besides being educational, the event also served as a fundraiser for the Amsoil Northland Law Enforcement K-9 Foundation.

“Unfortunately budgets are very tight and a K-9 program is expensive. They fund us and they allow us to be here today. Along with the public support, too,” said Officer Nicholas Eastman, Superior Police Department.

In the last few months, area K-9 units have helped with things like finding a missing toddler on the Iron Range and a weapon used in a Duluth bank robbery.
