|Orange County Corrections Department Officially Swears in K-9 Officers|
The Orange County Corrections Department’s K-9 Officers were asked to raise their paws to be officially sworn in at a ceremony at the Renaissance Senior Center. Corrections Chief Louis Quiñones did the honors in administering the Oath of Office on August 23, 2019.
The K-9 Unit is an important part of operations at Corrections. The dogs offer unique skills to keep the jail safe and trouble free.
“As cute and Instagram-worthy as Tony and Millie are, their jobs are very serious,” said Chief Quiñones. “Because of them, dangerous contraband is either detected or kept out of the jail.”
Both Tony and Millie are Labrador Retrivers and hail from Colombia, South America. Tony is 3 ½ and is trained to find drugs and cell phones. In the spring, he walked in the National Alliance on Mental Illness 5K and was one of the Corrections team’s top fundraisers. Millie is 1 ½ and is trained to detect narcotics.
