We at 1st Virginia Public Safety Training Academy are saddened at the events connected with this incident. We reserve any judgment until "All" the facts of the situation are disclosed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to "Everyone" affected by this occurrence.

However, due to the voluminous number of concerning phone calls, emails and walk in's, we have received, directly relating to this incident, we must clarify some points. We do not use "Bob's" range facility for any of our training processes. We were/are not affiliated with the specific individual named as a subject in this incident. Anyone concerned with the level of training you obtained at "Any" other Training Facility, via referrals, perceived affiliations and so on, may contact us directly for clarification. Based on these discussions with you, we will make arrangements to review and/or offer a retraining solution if necessary.

Lastly, Due to our affiliation with K9 Protective Services and Capt. John Williams, along with our own Lt. Tynan being a Certified VA DCJS K9 team Instructor and former MWD Handler himself, we are again deeply saddened at the loss of "Krijger", a valiant Police Officer in his own right.
