Meet Chase the Bloodhound, Polk's newest recruit
News

Lakeland, Florida -- You helped name him. Now, we're getting a chance to meet him.

The Polk County Sheriff's office newest member, Chase the Bloodhound, is getting plenty of attention. The sheriff's office had a Facebook contest to help come up with his name. His handler says it's one that fits what he'll do. 

Chase gets rewarded with treats for learning his new name and eventually for job training too. 

Deputy Sheriff Terry Roberts says his current partner will retire within the next year. That's when Chase will officially be out on the streets.

Tampa Police also has a new bloodhound recruit. His name is Blu and even has a blog to track his progress at the department.
