The Pima County Sheriff's Department has named the two newest, arguably cutest, members of the Crisis Response Canine team. Welcome, Luke and Leia.

The department asked the public for suggestions via Facebook two weeks ago. Heather Barnett submitting the winning names.

Deputy Leo's new brother and sister will be assigned to the Pima County Adult Detention Complex.

Just like any new PCSD member, the puppies will undergo training before they start their new jobs. They will be trained in the ins and outs of being therapy dogs, and will also learn basic obedience.
