“Chief” will be the name of the newest addition to the Huron Township Police Department’s recently added K9 unit — a name chosen by a handful of local school children who attend classes within the township.

“The name represents our community well and we are proud that the name represents our community and its tradition,” said Police Chief Everette Robbins.

On Sept. 29, the department reached out to local school children, asking all elementary classes in Huron to submit a list of five names to Robbins.

The winning name was picked by K9 Officer Ken Hickman and announced during the Oct. 14 meeting of the Huron Township Board of Trustees.

“We appreciate the participation of all of our schools within our township,” said Robbins.

Names that didn’t make the cut included Mr. Fluffy Pants, Chika Chika Boom Boom, Baby Doughnut and Wreck it Ralph.

Robbins said that multiple classes picked Chief and the winning classes, who sent a representative to the board meeting, were picked from a lottery.
