The competition, hosted for the first time by the Texarkana, Texas Police Department, features 20 teams from East Texas.
Each officer and their canine partner, will compete in different events to show people what exactly their units do.
While only one winner will be named, each officer will earn their credential so they can continue working in the field with their four-legged friend.
Texarkana, Texas Police Public Information Officer, Steve Shelley, says the event is important for our community.
"Officers go out there and take pride in their work," Shelley says. "They bond with these dogs and it's more than just a job to the dogs. They really enjoy what they do."
The event is this Thursday from 8-5pm.
It's free, and will be held at the Grady T. Wallace Park located off of Leopard Drive.
