K9 Leo

K9 Leo is on Patrol!

The Mayfield Village Police Department has acquired a new officer – our police K9, Leo.

Leo is a 15 month-old male German Shepard. Leo is certified in tracking, building and article searches, narcotics detection, handler protection and suspect apprehension. Leo and his handler, MVPD Officer Chris Cross, recently graduated from an intensive eight-week training school and are now on patrol, protecting Mayfield Village. 

Leo and Chris are available for demonstrations. If you or your organization would be interested in hosting such an event, simply call Chris here at the police station (440.461.1234) or email his supervisor, Sgt. Kathryn Troyer (KTroyer@mayfieldvillage.com).

Leo and Chris will be formally recognized at the regular Council meeting on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 8pm. I hope to see many of you there.
