VPD swears in new K-9 Officer Ayax

The Victoria Police Department swore in their newest officer, K-9 Ayax Wednesday. Ayax, a two year old dual purpose Belgian Malinois, is highly trained in narcotics detection as well as patrol functions and tracking. K-9 Ayax and his handler, Detective Alex Trejo, recently completed a four-week course at the Hill Country Dog Center in Pipe Creek, TX, where they were certified as a team through The National Narcotic Detector Dog Association (NNDDA).

Ayax was purchased with contributions so graciously donated by the Victoria Lion’s Club and Victoria Crimestoppers.
