Handlernet is an online resource for Law Enforcement K9 Handlers founded by the Invictus Tactical Co. The goal was to take new handlers and supervisors and bring them up to speed as fast as possible by connecting them with fellow handlers. Invictus was founded in 2006 by then K9 Handler, Daniel King.
King is a native of Las Vegas. He is a veteran of the US Army, where he served as a combat and flight medic throughout Central and South America. After returning to the United States, he deployed across the US conducting Search and Rescue, MAST (Military Assistance with Safety and Traffic), and Flight For Life Operations.
After leaving the Army, he was hired by a mid-sized police department in the Las Vegas valley. After working in patrol, he was selected and transferred to K9 where he worked a neurotic, but kind, Malinois. He also worked several narcotics labs, one of which thought he was a Malinois. Invictus also created the Invictus Law Dog, an International Police K9 Conference, held each year in Las Vegas.
King has served as an OIC, K9 Handler, SWAT Officer, Street Crimes Detective and Training Officer. He is trained and experienced in K9 Ops, tactical firearms, SWAT Ops, leadership, narcotics investigations, mobile and static surveillance and a bunch of other cool resume stuff.
He currently serves on the department training staff and is married with expensive kids. For fun he makes relatively awesome K9 shirts in his sweatshop like studio (his wife calls it the garage, which technically it is called that in America). Anyway, if your awesome, and want to show people who are somehow blind to it, you should buy one HERE.
