Grovetown’s newest public safety officer won’t be driving a patrol car, but will be riding in the back seat instead.
Chico, a 3-year-old Belgian malinois, joined the force on June 11. The laid-back dog is partnered with Cpl. Joseph Greene.
“He’s very sociable,” Greene said of his new partner and roommate. “He loves attention.”
Chico is a former military dog trained to sniff out bombs and drugs. While Chico wasn’t vicious enough for duty at Fort Benning, his friendly disposition is exactly what Director Gary Owens was hoping for.
