CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. (WPRI) — Central Falls Police Department is asking for help naming their new four-legged member.

While the K-9 German Shepherd still needs to complete a month-long training program, the department said he is expected to become certified and join the force early next year.

But before the K-9 begins his training, he first needs a name. That’s why the department is asking Central Falls students to help them come up with one.

Each Central Falls school is being asked to submit a name by Dec. 15. On that day, School Resource Officer Randy Roberts will be going to each school to pick up the chosen name.

Whichever school is chosen, the department said, is where the K-9 and his handler will take the oath of office.

The winning name is expected to be announced Dec. 22.
