BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – We are so grateful for our 4-legged heroes!
It’s proven time and again that patrol canine’s make communities safer.
Last week, K-9 Maverick and his human captured a fleeing felon with a history of domestic violence and stalking.
This suspect became violent, throwing rocks and breaking windows at a home where his former girlfriend now lives.
He fled as soon as he heard police responding. It was not an easy track through thick woods to find the suspect and make sure he did not hurt anyone.
Watch as Officer Rhoades shares how his partner, K-9 Maverick, led him and his other humans from Bravo Squad to a suspect’s peaceful surrender!
