The Ceres Police Department has a new police dog and handler on the streets thanks to a grant from the U.S. Department of justice. Vegas, a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois, will replace 12-year-old canine Zeus, who retired when his handler Joseph Wren was promoted to sergeant last month. Vegas will be handled by Officer Kiashira Ruiz, a 4-year veteran of the department. The grant that purchased Vegas also paid for 200 hours of training for Ruiz and Vegas. Wren purchased Zeus from the Police Department to live out his retirement with Wren and his family.
