The latest addition to the police department is a 70-pound rookie doggedly determined to sniff out the bad guys.
Carlos, a German shepherd, hit the streets this week with his handler, Officer Dwight Adams, after graduating from the John “Sonny” Burke Police K-9 Academy in Atlantic County. His dog tag police badge is on order.
The team capped off their 16 weeks of training by winning the prestigious Burke Award. Each class awards the honor to the graduate demonstrating the highest level of performance and dedication.
