The Ocala Police Department would like to announce the winner of the name the K-9 Contest. Kim Bowman suggested the name Brinson in honor of Detective Kevin Brinson a 10 year veteran of the Ocala Police Department who passed away from lymphoma in 2009. Miss Bowman declined the ride along with the K-9 so Mary Tomassetti who submitted the name Rowdy picked as the second choice by the Judges was awarded the Ride Along with the K-9. Photos and a follow-up press release will be sent out later in the week. Thanks so much to everyone who submitted entries; it was a lot of fun for all of us involved.
