100 possible names were submitted.
On Friday Oct. 24, we took the top three suggestions and asked you to pick your favourite through an online survey. I have attached the results of the survey. At noon today, Constable Watson began calling our police service dog “Recon”.
Amongst many other submissions, we received a handwritten letter from a Peterborough resident who submitted the name “Recon” in memory of her nephew. Her nephew was a Canadian Soldier, killed in Afghanistan while on a military reconnaissance.
Reconnaissance can be defined as “The observation of a region to locate an enemy or ascertain strategic features”
We wish to thank our community and our media partners for their involvement with naming him. Hopefully you will get to meet Recon shortly.
