Dade City, Fla.-(Newsradio 970 WFLA)-It'll be Tyke and Burns patrolling the streets around here. Tyke is Dade City's new crime dog and will join human officer Kevin Burns to enforce the law.
Burns and Tyke have just wrapped up a 16-week training course sponsored by the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. The new K-9 team is capable of searching buildings and tracking criminals, missing children and missing adults.
Police Chief Ray Velboom says he wants the new crime-fighting team to be seen interacting downtown and in the schools.
