The Mundelein police department announced Thursday the addition of its newest recruit, a German Shepherd K-9 officer.

Titan, a sable-colored male who was born on Aug. 10, 2013, was “carefully selected and imported to the United States from Slovak Republic,” according to a statement from Mundelein police.

Titan is certified in narcotics detection, obedience, building/area searches, article searches, obstacle course training, tracking and handler protection.

He is paired with Officer Steven Kroll, and they are the department’s first K-9 unit since 1970. Titan currently lives at home with Officer Kroll’s family.
