A few months ago, Cst. Joel Lalonde and his family said goodbye to Diego, a Police Service dog, and family member.
On July 31, Cst. Lalonde’s newest partner, Matrix, completed training and is now a fully operational member of the Canine Unit. Matrix is a 15-month old Belgian Malinois, a breed that is a first for the SPS. In just a few days on the job, he has already assisted in the arrest of two persons, and recovered property in a third instance.
