Recon On Duty!
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,”
Shirley, pictured below, suggested the name Recon in honour of her nephew, a Canadian Forces Military Police Officer who was killed in Afghanistan.
