Chief Gabriel Rodriguez, Camden Mayor Vic Carstarphen and other city and county elected officials will be on hand as well to talk about the importance of the department’s police K9s and about the department’s continuing community outreach initiatives.


“Ensuring that we are using every tool possible to connect with the youngest members of our community is critical to our mission,” Rodriguez said. “That said, a dog like Unity will continue to give us the opportunity to break down dialogue barriers to our youngest and most impressionable residents- our youth. In addition, to her work with kids in the city she will also be a great tool for recruitment for the agency.”
