“Two of these dogs were purchased entirely from donations from the Bear Family and Hanto & Clarke through Pensacola’s Finest Foundation and we can’t say thank you enough. These dogs are an invaluable tool to public safety. They are able to not just find suspects and find drugs, but they go a long way in protecting our police officers.” — Deputy Chief Kevin Christman, Pensacola Police Department.

Welcome to the team, boys and thank you for your service. Pensacola is lucky to have you and we look forward to seeing all your hard work.
