The Evansville Police Department K-9 Unit hosted the annual United States Police Canine Association Detector Trials for their region on Monday.

Twenty K-9 teams took part in the competition.

Teams were tested in narcotics and explosives detection at Tri-State Towing and the Academy for Innovative Studies.

Two teams tied for the top score separated, only by time used.

First place went to Kyle Vallad and "Dex" of the Warrick County Sheriff's Office.

The EPD's own Kacey Ross and "Hiki" placed second.

Monday morning, we will see partly sunny skies with temperatures still in the mid 20°s. By the afternoon, we will be warming up into the mid 40°s with cloud coverage increasing. This is due to a cold front expected to traverse the tri-state overnight Monday.
