It’s official…Scooby and Chase were the names selected from almost three thousand submissions by community members for the Titusville Police Department’s newest additions to their K9 Unit.
The names for the fourteen month old Belgian Malinois were revealed on July 14th 2017 at the Friday Nite Live Street Party Event in historic downtown Titusville.
“Our K9 team was overwhelmed with the amazing response from the citizens of Titusville”, said Lieutenant Chris Deloach. “Scooby and Chase will soon be serving and protecting the community that helped name them”, added Deloach.
Both K9 dogs are currently in a six hundred and forty hour training regimen with their handlers.
When their training concludes in August 2017, the K9 teams will be certified for narcotics detection, criminal apprehension, handler protection, area and building searches, and tracking.
