Allen County Sheriff’s Department School Resource Officer A.J. Pape is 1st in the Nation to Receive School Resource Officer Detection Certification.



     Officer A.J. Pape received a letter on behalf of the American Police Canine Association commending and congratulating himself and his K-9 partner, Hunter, as being the first law enforcement team in the nation to receive the School Resource Officer (SRO) Detection Certification.  This is an achievement of major significance considering the numerous national and state canine associations in existence. In addition, Officer Pape’s contribution in the implementation of the SRO Certification Program was indeed recognized by the association, and the SRO teams who will follow in his footsteps.   Officer Pape’s American Police Canine Association School Resource Officer Detection Certification Certificate will hang in his office at Homestead High School and bear the certificate number 0001.
