NR 14-33 Sheriff’s Office Hosts: Name Our Puppy Contest

May 6, 2014 - 10:26 am Author: Category:

The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is once again asking for your help in naming the newest member of our Agency.

The latest addition to our incredible K-9 Unit is a 12-week-old male Bloodhound puppy that was donated to our agency by the Jimmy Ryce Foundation. He will be trained to search for missing and endangered children and adults. The Jimmy Ryce Foundation donates Bloodhounds to Law Enforcement agencies in memory of Jimmy Ryce, who was abducted and murdered in 1995.

Name submissions will be accepted on the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, Florida (Official) Facebook Page or the Sheriff Wayne Ivey Facebook Page. The deadline for name submissions is Friday, May 16, 2014, at midnight. If the name you suggest has a significant meaning or reason, please share the reason with us.

Sheriff Ivey and his K-9 Team will review the names and select a winning submission. We will announce the winner of the Name Our Puppy Contest and invite the winner to join us at our Swearing-In Ceremony, where they will name and officially pin the Star on the BCSO’s newest K-9 member.

If you have any questions, please contact our Crime Prevention Unit at (321) 264-7755.
