New pup on the force

August 7, 2014 

The Lee’s Summit Police Department introduced the newest member of their K-9 team Aug. 7 at police headquarters. Enzo, a 2-year-old Belgium Malinois and his handler, Officer Scott McMilian, completed a short demonstration featuring some of the search techniques police dogs are known for. Here, McMilian escorts Enzo into headquarters prior to introductions. Enzo was born in Holland and trained in the United States. He started his training in April 2014 before joining McMilian in June. The dog understands commands in German and English. Enzo replaces McMilian’s late K-9 partner, Jax, who died in January of intestinal cancer. Enzo will be Lee’s Summit Police Department’s seventh K-9 officer since the program’s establishment in 1992. The dog’s training was paid for through community donations.
