Meet Charlie! Social Circle Police Department’s newest member
Charlie was excited to meet his new team and especially his new partner, Officer Chad Hunt on Tuesday, October 17, 2017. Charlie has already joined Office Hunt on his rounds. The pair will complete training together over the next few weeks before Charlie can be fully utilized on patrol.
Charlie is a 4 year old Belgian Malinois that is highly trained in narcotics detection. Charlie has served oversees in the Republic of Georgia most of his career, but looks forward serving with the Social Circle Police Department. “He’s very social and has settled in well.” said Officer Chad Hunt
Charlie was donated to the Social Circle Police Department with the facilitation of the State Department and City of Covington Police Department. Expenses associated with Charlie’s upkeep and equipment were paid for through asset forfeiture and donations.
“Charlie will be a tremendous asset to the city of Social Circle as we continue to make this community a better place to live, work and play. “said Police Chief Tyrone Oliver.
