COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Interim Police Chief Ruben Santiago introduced two newest rookies to the CPD K-9 Team, according to a post on their facebook page.

Anna is a 21-month-old Dutch Shepherd from Holland and Jesse is a 20-month-old male German Shepherd from Slovakia.

Both dogs were acquired by the Columbia Police Department in August through the use of donations made to the Columbia Police Foundation.

Both K-9's are being trained to be proficient in tracking, drug detection and patrol work.

Once their training is complete, they will patrol the City of Columbia with their human partners.
