Medina welcomes new K-9 team, and gives public a chance to pick dog’s name
MEDINA – The Medina Police Department welcomed a new K-9 today. The department also announced the dog’s handler, police officer Jacob Reeves.
The dog, a Belgian Malinois, will train for 14 weeks with Reeves before going into service for the community. They will train in patrols and drug detection.
Medina PD is giving the public a chance to vote for the dog’s name. The options include: Bandit, Erie, Phoenix, Gunner, Apollo and Raider. Click here to cast a vote on the Medina PD Facebook page.
Reeves joined the Medina PD in May 2016. He will replace Lt. Todd Draper as the department’s K-9 handler. The new dog also will replace Kye, who has worked with Draper the past eight years. When the new dog completes its training, Kye will retire, likely in late fall.
