Three K9 officers graduate from Richmond training academy

Richmond police have two new officers to sniff out crime after graduating from K9 training Friday.

Zeus and Havoc completed the 14-week course alongside handlers Samuel Hernandez and Daniel Dixon. The two dogs were joined by another trainee, Draco, from Louisa County.

Draco will be getting additional training to serve as a drug detection dog.

The dogs showed off some of their skills with a demonstration at the graduation ceremony, completing an obstacle course and taking down a fleeing suspect.
