They also had to plan the public demonstration, taking place May 5 at Kuhlman Field in Edina. The demonstration included K 9s showing agility, narcotics and explosives detection, and apprehension of a suspect. It concluded with a mock incident that involved shots fired at officers and fleeing police officers, bringing in Edina SWAT with Diesel and Blade to apprehend the mock suspects.
Fundraising was challenging, Olson said. They had to find corporate sponsors, and ask Nike Uptempo Blue And Yellow
The West End Trap Club in Eagan hosted a fundraiser called Clays for K 9s in October to help, and without the club helping them with donations, they would have been financially hurting, Olson said. They also partnered with Retired Paws, an Arizona based nonprofit that supports retired K 9s.
More than a year of planning came to fruition when 98 law enforcement K 9s and their handlers arrived in the southwest metro.
All the planning for the trials occurred while the officers were off duty. They had to set up fundraising avenues to bring in the revenue needed to host the event.
A committee met monthly to plan the trials. Olson said he had expected more hiccups in the planning. Edina's K 9 unit supervisor, Sgt. Dan Conboy, said the behind the scenes planning was more than he had originally anticipated.
The money raised now goes toward defraying the costs of K 9 training in the region. Money is tight for anyone and K 9 training is expensive, Olson said.
Olson and Seeger were at the trials in Florida in 2012 when the idea began to co host the trials, Olson said.
Organizers heard a lot of positive feedback about the trials, and Olson and Edina Officer Mike Seeger received the Ted Hirsch Memorial Award, named after the chairman of the first police dog trials in 1968, for their work on organizing the trails at the closing banquet May 7.

The vehicle searches took place at the former UnitedHealth Group building on Lincoln Drive, where they had six cars set up with hidden narcotics. The explosives detection trials took place at MSP's Air Reserve Station, Olson said.
K 9 teams at the trials represented municipal, county, state and federal agencies. Many of the teams were from Minnesota because it was easy to travel, but teams also came from places in Texas, New York, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Iowa and South Dakota, Conboy said.

During the events, K 9s are scored with points deducted if the judges felt the K 9 missed an area during the search. A K 9's time in completing the search is used in the case of a tied score.
The Edina Police and Minneapolis St. Police Canine Association National Detector Dog Trials May 4 7, with the largest attendance at the national detector trials in several years. About 50 attended the trials in Louisiana last year, said Lt. Craig Olson of the MSP Police, one of the organizers.
Funding also came from registration fees. The fees for Edina's K 9s "Diesel" and "Blade" were paid by an anonymous donor in memory of "Kodiak," an Edina K 9 who recently died.
Seeger said Edina would host the trials if MSP Police also hosted the trials because the airport police department has expertise in explosives detection. The only way they were going to host a good trial was to have both explosives and narcotics detection, he said.
They also had to find venues to hold the events during the trials. Edina had two venues for the narcotics portion, Conboy said. New City Covenant Church was the site for the Nike Uptempo 97 Ebay
