Castle Rock Offers New, Furry Officer to the Department
The Castle Rock Police Department recently welcomed its newest member to the team: Police Service Dog Ronin. Ronin was sworn in last month and has officially begun his duty around town.
According to a city press release, Ronin joined the department after completing more than 20 weeks of training and has been assigned to Officer Todd Thompson.
“Their duties include: area and building searches; officer protection; detection of illegal narcotics; and suspect tracking and apprehension,” the release said.
Castle Rock police currently have two canine officers in service that not only protect the local community, but also help other police departments around the state in necessary situations.
Ronin came on board as Police Service Dog Legion was formally retired due to extensive injuries related to his past four years of service.
