The department introduced him as Ace and he’s a 19-month-old Malinois. Ace joined the department as a K-9 officer after police received a donation from the Tri County Blue Line Alliance. 

“This is a joyous occasion to be able to acquire Ace, considering all the challenges everyone is facing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said the department in a release. 

Ace will be working alongside his handler, Officer Marco Diaz. 

The department said it also hopes to purchase a third K-9 by the end of 2021
