10/30/22 – 2023 K9 Seminar General Info

As noted above and in the BCSO K-9 Seminar News email, registration for the 2023 seminar starts today at 5pm CT.   The full web address to this year’s seminar registration system is:

This year, we’ll have attendees start each day meeting in the NE portion of the Panama City Mall parking lot, off of 23rd Street.  Much of the mall is still closed from when Hurricane Michael hit us 4 years ago so it is very low traffic and plenty of room for your vehicles.  Our SAR command post will be setup at the meeting area and will be easy to spot.

There are two host hotels this year.  Special rates are indicated on the registration site:

    • Quality Inn & Conference Center, 1013 E. 23rd St.Panama City, FL 32405
      (850) 769-6969.
    • La Quinta Ins and Suites by Wyndam, 1030 E. 23rd St. Panama CIty, FL
      (850) 914-0022

Both are located near the Mall meeting area:
Seminar classes will be held at a variety of locations in the Bay County area.  These will include:

  • Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport
  • Gulf Coast State College North Bay Campus
  • BCSO Wilderness Camp
  • Deer Point Lake and/or Martin Lake

Last year we instituted a background check for attendees due to some sensitive information that is covered in classes and areas accessed during the seminar.  This year is no different and attendees are encouraged to complete that part of the process as soon as they receive the email instructions after registering.

Check back for additional details.
