BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – Cocoa Police have a new K9 officer on their team!
They call him “Copper.”
‘Copper’ is a black and tan Coonhound donated to Cocoa Police Department by Cynthia Drake Owens at Oak Hill Kennels in Oxford, North Carolina.
The 4-month-old pup is currently in training for tracking to help find missing persons and locate illegal drugs.
Cocoa Police plan to make him a member of the Community Resource Unit where he can also meet the residents of Cocoa and see the children in local schools.
Cocoa Police are very happy to have ‘Copper’ and can’t wait for the community to meet him!
