BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – The Cocoa Police Department is heartbroken to announce the passing of our newest patrol dog K-9 Zena.

K-9 Zena was discovered dead early Wednesday afternoon in the back of her patrol vehicle.

Her handler found her when he went to check on her during a training class at the Criminal Justice Academy in Melbourne.

An active investigation is underway to determine the cause of death, and if department policies and procedures were followed.

K-9 Zena was donated to the City last August. She was a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois who was trained and newly certified in April for patrol work.
