CPD welcomes new K9 officer
Friday, July 6, 2012

COLUMBIA, SC - The Columbia Police Department welcomed its newest K9 officer earlier this week.

Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott welcomed Amanda on Monday. She is a 1 1/2 year old, full-service Belgian Malinois imported from Holland.

She is assigned to Officer J. Hardin.

Amanda successfully completed extensive training at Custom Canine, Unlimited in Mayesville, Georgia recently.

She joined the force just days after the department lost an 8-year K9 veteran.

Department spokesperson Jennifer Timmons said K9 officer Jinx died June 26 from medical complications. Jinx was assigned to Sgt. P.J. Blendowski.

She was a German/Dutch Shepeherd mix and served the CPD since 2003. Jinx was trained to serve a variety of duties, including patrol, tracking, suspect apprehension and drug detection.

Her parents were also K9 officers with the Columbia Police Department.
