About CNCA

History – How It All Began

In 1991 the LAPD Narcotic K-9 detail hosted a 3 day training seminar for narcotic canine handlers. This seminar served as the springboard for this organization. In 1992, through the hard work of the founding board members of CNCA and many other professionals in the business, CNCA became a reality and is now recognized as the mentor organization for narcotic canine law enforcement in California. Resulting from the events of 9/11 CNCA has pressed hard into explosive detection and has incorporated all aspects of explosive detection dogs into its training days and the annual January Training Institute.  As a result from the direct request from our membership,  we have added a full complement of Patrol classes to our curriculum. Law enforcement Patrol K9 Certification is NOW available in addition to narcotic and explosive certification.
