St. Louis County, MN- St. Louis County Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Smith and K9 Pheonix were chosen by the United States Police Canine Association as the national recipient of the Patrol Case of the Quarter for the 3rd quarter of 2022. According to a Facebook post by the Northland K9 Foundation, the incident happened in Virginia last July. St. Louis County Sheriff’s Deputies were responding to a suspect barricaded inside a garage. Several officers received minor injuries during the response, but after deploying K9 Pheonix they were able to take the man into custody without any serious injuries. Officers on-scene called K9 Phoenix a rockstar and now the pair share this national honor. They were given the award in February after being selected from submissions from over 25 regions in the United States.
