Flagler County, FL – A new K-9 is headed to school to train for a new job with the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office. But, before he begins his first day of class, he needs a name.
FCSO says a German Shepard was donated to the sheriff’s office by Summit Nutritionals and Dr. Cesar Depaço and his wife, Deanna.
The dog, valued at over $8,000, was hand-picked by FCSO from a group of 21 other dogs available for police work.
“Our K-9 Deputies are an important part of our team and he will be a great addition for patrol and narcotics detection,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “We need the community’s help to find him a name before he heads to school.”
Once the K-9 is named, he will head to a 480 hour Florida Department of Law Enforcement Training Course.
For those that wish to participate, they can submit their suggestion through a page created by FCSO. The deadline is Wednesday, September 12th at Midnight. A name will be announced on their Facebook, 10 a.m. Thursday, September 13th.
