Last night Chief Mason and Mayor Holbert had the honor of swearing in the Village’s first-ever K-9 Officer.
Mayor Holbert read Revan his vow of duty and even got a paw print signature to make it official, as a crowd and news media looked on. Revan was also joined by “big brother” K-9’s from surrounding communities including Shaker Heights, Lyndhurst, South Euclid, Cleveland Heights, Bedford and Strongsville.
The adorable German Shepherd pup was born on Veteran’s Day and will soon begin training with Woodmere Police Officer Dotson, who will also raise him.
K-9 Officers assist police efforts with searching for drugs and explosives, crime scene investigations, locating missing people, and defending officers.
Thank you to Officer Dotson for taking on this commitment and taking the initiative to bring a K-9 to the area. We are so excited to have this new addition to the force!
