The North Carolina Police Dog Association was founded in 1992 by a group of Canine Handlers from local and state agencies across North Carolina.

The goal was to create a "Down To Earth" real life standard for canine teams to successfully attain on a yearly basis. We have a system that is simply pass or fail, not a points system. We provide certification for Law Enforcement (patrol, narcotics, tracking, etc), Search & Rescue, and Human Remains Detection dog teams. The NCPDA has certified teams from across the US and Canada.

Founders: Mark Mills, Ritchie Price, Karen Barbee, John Johnson, and Ken Castaloe.
