RCC's K9 Team Places 1st

Members of Rayburn Correctional Center’s K9 Team participated in the Annual Louisiana Department of Corrections Manhunt Field Trials, hosted by Raymond Laborde Correctional Center May 21-24, 2024 at Kisatchie National Forest in Pollock, LA. A total of 42 Chase Team members from 7 DOC facilities, Winnfield Correctional and a K-9 team from Escambia County Florida attended the competition. 

RCC took first place in the competition for the seventh time in the past 12 years. RCC had the fastest average track followed by RLCC in 2nd place, Escambia County in 3rd place and EHCC in 4th place. The teams were very competitive and all were able to successfully catch within the 90 minute time limit. The teams were treated to a crawfish boil, hosted by RLCC after the awards presentation. All members were complimented on their dedication to the training and thanked for their support of the K-9 Units across the department. 

Congratulations to Rayburn Correctional Center’s K9 Team members, Tracking Dog “Pine”, Lt. Col. Connor Holmes, Lt. Col. Richard Forbes and Lt. Col. Tylan Self who are pictured with Rayburn Correctional Center’s K9 Commander, Col. Chesley Spears. 

Rayburn Correctional Center is grateful to Louisiana Department of Corrections Secretary James Leblanc, and Warden Travis Day for being given the opportunity to attend and compete in this prestigious event and for Raymond Laborde Correctional Center’s Warden Marcus Myers and his administration for hosting the event that builds camaraderie and knowledge for all who attend and compete.
