CINCINNATI– A new Toyota Tundra will soon be joining the Cincinnati Police Department. However, this particular Tundra will feature four legs instead of four doors, and a tail instead of a tailgate. At a ceremony recently held at the Cincinnati Police Department’s firing range, Toyota donated $5,000 to the Cincinnati Police Department to replace a retiring member of its K9 unit. Since Toyota made the donation, and the retiring dog was named “Dakota,” police officials decided to show appreciation by naming the new one “Tundra.”

The Cincinnati Police Department’s K9 unit is responsible for assisting officers in high-risk search operations requiring the dog’s keen sense of smell to locate potentially armed and dangerous individuals suspected of criminal activity and evading police. The Cincinnati Police Department has 10 canine patrol teams.
