STRONGSVILLE, Ohio — The newest member of the Strongsville Police Department is ready to put his four paws on the ground and get to work.
On Thursday, the department introduced K9 Tito on Facebook. Tito is a two-year-old German Shepherd from Slovakia.
Tito and his handler, Officer Patrick O'Sullivan, recently completed six weeks of training and are now certified by the state as a dual-purpose K9 team.
According to the department, the new K9 team is trained to sniff out illegal narcotics, track individuals, search for lost people, and of course, Tito’s favorite, apprehending criminals.
