Reno PD K9 Get’s Chief’s Commendation



Sorry that I haven’t been updating you, but Elza has been keeping us busy. Since January 1st we have seized $770,000 cash, a ton of Marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, pounds of Meth and a bunch of prescription pills. Elza has also been assisting the Street Crimes Unit, Highway Patrol, DEA and patrol unit. 
Yesterday Elza was presented with the Chiefs Commendation Medal. She was also given a Kong. Needless to say she wasn’t interested in the medal, but loved the Kong. 
Elza was a perfect fit for our unit. You and the rest of the Tarheel Staff should be very proud of the quality police dogs that come from your facility.  We are assisted daily by the other Tarheel Dogs we have at our department. These other dogs and their handlers are a big part of our success.
I have attached a photo of Elza’s award.  
Thanks again, 
Detective Joe Lever
