Coming off their six week training program in CA, two new K-9's officially joined the Pasco Police Department Wednesday, May 6.

The black dog is K-9 Brit, the German Shepard looking one is Elan. Their training will continue until they are state certified for patrol work, and then down the road they will be trained in narcotics.

They will soon join K-9 Jucon, and the drug detection only dog Ezra on the force. Pasco plans to add another dog in the near future.

With the untimely and unexpected medical issues that lead to the passing of K-9 Hapo and Lemon, the department was sorely understaffed when it came to K-9 units.
