CPD Introduces K-9 Member Pecco

The Coeur d’ Alene Police Department is proud to announce the newest member of the department as K-9 Pecco. Pecco is a three year old Belgium Malinois from the Netherlands. Pecco was purchased from Alderhorst International in Riverside, CA. K-9 Pecco has been partnered with Officer Amy Winstead (pictured). Officer Winstead was previously partnered with K-9 Kane who had difficulty obtaining his certification. Kane was returned to the vendor. On 08-13-14 Officer Winstead and Pecco graduated a 360 hours basic K-9 training school and passed the Idaho K-9 Certification evaluation for tracking, evidence, and patrol work. At a later date Pecco will obtain training to be certified as a narcotics detection dog. Attached is a photo of Officer Amy Winstead and Pecco/Sgt. Christie Wood, Coeur d'Alene Police Department.
