K9 DOG DONATION
Nassau County Executive Laura Curran and Police Commissioner Patrick J. Ryder announce that the Nassau County Police Department’s K-9 unit has received three new dogs. K9’s Bernie and Chief were both donated by the Nassau County Police Foundation.
K-9 Turo, named in the memory of NCPD Officer Artie (Arturo) Lopez who was killed in the line of Duty on October 23, 2012 was donated by an anonymous donor through the National Police Foundation.
“Police canines are an essential part of our Department and their assistance has helped Nassau remain the safest large suburban counties in the nation,” said County Executive Curran.
“The training that the canines as well as their handlers will undergo is rigorous and demanding, but that is how we ensure that only the best canines become members of the Nassau County Police Department,” said Commissioner Ryder. “These new dogs will assist police in apprehending criminals, searching for missing persons and keeping Nassau County safe. Each one of the police dogs that are members of our team adapt well to new and changing situations, which makes them extremely valuable to the department.”
