Some of Waterloo Regional Police’s frontline officers, with four legs, are featured in a new calendar.
The force is selling its first-ever Canine Calendar in support of Special Olympics Ontario.
It features four of the service’s canines – Chase, Grim, Ranger, and Tracker – along with their handlers.
“We worked together with a photographer who specializes in ‘dog photography,'” explained Cherri Greeno, Manager of Corporate Communications and Public information with Waterloo Regional Police. “We did something a little different than other police services: we made the calendar a story that we could share with the community. All four members of our canine unit are working together with their handlers to solve a case of stolen dog bones. Each month it takes the viewer through the investigation and where these dogs are going throughout the Region to help solve ‘The Dog Bone Bandit.'”
“For the most part, the dogs did cooperate,” recounted Greeno. “They’re very well-trained to listen to their handlers, so we worked with them. In the end it all worked out and I think the dogs are pretty happy with seeing themselves in the photographs.”
As part of the launch, members of the canine unit will be on hand at PetSmart (655 Fairway Road South in Kitchener) on Thursday, October 10, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
They will be available to sign the calendars, take photos and provide information about their unit.
The calendars, which are $20, can be purchased at the launch or online.
Police will be hosting the Special Olympics Ontario Spring 2020 Games in May.
They will feature five sports including basketball, swimming and 10-pin bowling.
