The Deptford Township Police department added two new dogs to its K-9 unit.

K-9 Titan and K-9 Rebel will be joining the team and replace K-9 Aron, a veteran near retirement. K-9 Rebel got his name after a vote by fifth grade students in a school that in which handling officer Michael Tirado was teaching DARE.

The two German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois canines will start training with their officers in January in Atlantic County.

Chief William Hanstein stated, "[T]he new additions to our K-9 Unit will further demonstrate our commitment to public safety."
