PBC School Police ask elementary students for help naming new bloodhound puppy 

By Allison Ross

In what may possibly be the cutest news to ever come out of this department, Palm Beach County School Police have adopted a nine-week-old bloodhound puppy dog, and now they’re asking elementary school students to help name him.

The puppy was donated by the Jimmy Ryce Center for Victims of Predatory Abduction, a Miami Beach-based organization that provides bloodhounds to law enforcement agencies to help find abducted and lost children.

The school police department says it will be the only school police department in the nation to have a working bloodhound to help find missing and endangered children.

The contest to name the puppy is open to all Palm Beach County public elementary school classes.

Classroom teachers can submit the suggested name — which must begin with a “K” — to namethepuppy@outlook.com by no later than 2 p.m. on Friday, March 1. Only one name submission per class will be accepted.

The puppy’s new name will be announced during the March 13 school board meeting.

For now, the puppy is apparently hanging out at Atlantic High School and getting trained by Officer Curtis Riddick.

And now, more gratuitous puppy photos:
