RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Virginia State Police are hoping the public can help them name their newest recruit, a handsome 3-year-old German Shepherd who arrived at headquarters in early March.

He’s already started training, but he doesn’t have a name yet. Thanks to votes from citizens, troopers have narrowed down the choices to five.

  • Smoke
  • Hero
  • Storm
  • Jedi
  • Stone

This summer, the K-9 hit the road to become one of the 15 patrol dogs in VSP’s ranks.
