The Saanich Police new mascot 'Ace' was introduced to a group of adoring fans at police headquarters today. 'Ace' will be visiting many classes and special events in the near future. His job will be to engage with the children in our community.

Ace is aptly named after a past Saanich Police Service dog that served the community from 1992-2001 and was a national champion police dog. Sadly, Ace passed away in 2003 and is fondly remembered by the men and women of the Saanich Police and his former handler Sgt. Glen MacKenzie.

So if you see 'Ace' out on patrol stop and say hi!
