   About Events



Members kibitz and dine at the New York Pizza and Pasta restaurant. Other members also enjoy dinner and friendly chats. After dinner, members await the arrival of Metro's finest K-9 unit.
Event host, Leslie Schoenberg, introduces Metro officers, Scott Murray (L) and Jeff Harper (R). Officer Murray addresses the membership. Officer Murray speaks about how the K-9 unit supports both law enforcement and civic functions.
Officer Murray says pups that are bred and selected for the job cost about $12,000, and not all measure up. Some are returned. Officer Murray tells us K-9 partners are trained to understand orders in German in order to conceal them from "perps". Leslie talks with Officer Parker, who handles K-9 partner, Rocco. Officer Murray handles Max, who was not present.
Leslie, an avid animal lover, pets Rocco under the watchful eyes of Officer Parker. Members meet Rocco, the star of the show. Rocco is really cute, but he can take you down on command if you're a trouble maker.
