AVON, Colorado — The Avon Police Department (APD) has a new recruit without a name.
The K9 officer is a 4-year-old female Beagle. APD said she joined the department March 23 and is "adjusting to her new role quite well."
APD is asking for help in choosing a name for its newest recruit.
Name suggestions from students at Avon Elementary School have been whittled down to five finalists:
- Bagel the Beagle
- Nova (Avon backwards/new star)
- Avi (short for Avon)
- Cubbi (Avon Elementary School mascot)
APD said the winning name will be announced Friday, April 29.
