Chief Mike Cantaloupe swore in our newest K9 Copper last night at the council meeting. Here is a copy of the text for Copper's Oath of Office and the edited video of the ceremony.
I, Copper, do solemnly swear that I will show love and respect to all I encounter and that I am more than qualified with certifications in therapy and K9 Good Citizenship. I promise to search for the missing and the lost, and bring comfort to those in need. I will be loyal to the citizens of Cocoa and faithfully perform all the duties to assist my human partner, a police officer for the city of Cocoa, on which I am about to enter so help me God. Enjoy! #K9Copper
