With the help of the new Bellevue Police Foundation, the police have been able to land a key recruit, a German shepherd puppy named Roc. Having completed an extensive training and certification program with his K-9 officer, Roc has taken over for Bosco, who retired from tracking suspects and locating evidence in late 2009.
Bosco lived with his K-9 handler's family until December 2010 when sadly, he passed away. Roc and his handler made their first capture in March 2010 with the arrest of a car thief. Roc and his K-9 officer also made an appearance at the First Annual Fund Raiser presented by Puget Sound Energy in their Bellevue headquarters.
