Coronado Center acquires K-9 patrol dog

News

Coronado Center is beefing up security. 

A 2-year-old K-9 patrol dog named “Reno” was introduced Friday. 

The German Shepard is part of the shopping center’s public security program to help ensure a safe, but welcoming environment for the community. 

“We train our dogs to be very social so they can be pet by people. They’re very approachable. They’re very friendly, but he’s still a certified dual purpose patrol and detection dog,” K-9 officer Nathan Beckstrand said. 

GGP, which owns Coronado Center, introduced its patrol dog program in 2010. Reno is the 11th dog to participate.
