Rayburn Correctional Center’s K-9 Team competed in the Louisiana Department of Corrections Manhunt Field Trials this week at Camp Beauregard in Alexandria and earned First Place.
Trials consisted of two tracks. The first was a day trail, 2 hours old and 1 mile long. The second was a night trail, 1.5 hours old and 1 mile long. Each trail contained 4 articles. One minute was deducted from the team’s final time for each article found. Nine teams competed, eight from correctional facilities in Louisiana and one from Florida. The final times from each trial were used to determine the team’s final average time.
Rayburn Correctional Center’s K-9 Team came in 1st place with an average time of 15 minutes 21 seconds, followed by the team from Florida and then David Wade Correctional Center. CONGRATULATIONS RCC K-9 TEAM!
