TROY, N.Y.—The Troy Police Department said goodbye to one of its members Friday, but also welcomed a rookie into the ranks.
Instead of new uniforms, the new officer will receive milk bone treats and chew toys. Blair is the newest K-9 Officer of the Troy Police Department.
The department also unveiled new ballistic vests that will be given to K-9 officers during tactical situations. The money for the vests was donated in full by a resident near Troy in memory of his late wife who loved dogs.
Troy Police also acknowledged the retirement of one of their top K-9s. Elza had been with the department since January 2005.
