Recon On Duty! 

Under Armour Hoodies 
After an intense training course with the Durham Regional Police Canine program, Recon was certified as a general purpose police service dog.
In October 2014 Kawartha Lakes Police asked our community, to name our police dog. After tallying up all the submitted names, they narrowed the choice down to three submissions. Then with the assistance on an online survey posted on October 24th, the community elected to name our community police dog “Recon,”
Why Recon?
Shirley, pictured below, suggested the name Recon in honour of her nephew, a Canadian Forces Military Police Officer who was killed in Afghanistan.

April 22nd 2006, Corporal Randy Payne,  the son of a Peterborough area couple was killed by a roadside bomb. Shirley, a close family relative residing in Peterborough suggested our newest Kawartha Lakes Officer be named “Recon” (short for a military reconnaissance).
