YAPHANK, N.Y. (AP) - A suburban New York police department has named a new K-9 in honor of the five law enforcers killed in Texas last month.

Suffolk County Police Commissioner Timothy Sini (SEE’-nee) says the 15-month-old German shepherd is named Dallas V (five).

Sini says Dallas V “is a visual reminder of the sacrifice, of the bravery of those five officers.”

The name was chosen by Dallas V’s human partner, Officer Kenneth Michaels.
