Two patrol officers and a sergeant have received new assignments in the Police Department in tribute to their expertise and dedication, officials said.
Officer Felicia Figol is the department’s new K-9 officer, Officer Jeffrey Silver will be a traffic officer and Sgt. Aaron Bahamonde will perform added administrative duties, Police Chief Michael Kehoe announced on Wednesday.
Kehoe said Figol has taken possession of the department’s dog Baro, a German Shepherd trained to sniff out narcotics and track suspects.
“She will begin four weeks of training with the dog in January,” he said, adding she and the dog will learn to interact and work together.
