Transit Police is pleased to announce that a name was selected for our new explosives detection dog.
The winning name for our newest recruit, a one year-old, female, chocolate lab is Kona. Kona means “Lady” in Hawaiian and is a popular dark brown Hawaiian coffee.
Over 640 contest submissions were received from Fort St. John to Sooke and everywhere in between.
Kiana Onyango, a Grade 7 student from Aberdeen Elementary School in Kamloops, B.C., was the contest winner. Kona and her handler Cst. Aaron Chan will be visiting Kiana’s school. Congratulations Kiana!
