Cherokee Police Department K-9 Shiloh and her handler, Officer Adam Roberts, traveled to Cookeville, Tenn. (near Nashville) to take part in a National show for police dogs May 18 - 21, and returned with some good results.

Shiloh participated in a test for certification as a drug-sniffing canine, sniffing out several rooms and vehicles in search of illegal drugs. A score of 140 (out of a possible 200) was required for certification, and Shiloh scored a 193 (though Officer Roberts said "She's done better " ) to receive her certification.

Officer Roberts said there were 88 dogs, from all over the country (including some large cities), competing for trophies at the Cookeville show, and Shiloh and handler Roberts earned two nice trophies - one for 8th Place overall, and another - first place - trophy in the team competition, where they teamed up with a canine and officer from Pocahontas, Iowa.
