RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — After two rounds of voting from Virginians, Virginia State Police is announcing its newest K-9 trainee will be named “Storm.”

“Storm” won out over four other choices: Smoke, Hero, Jedi and Stone.

Storm is a handsome 3-year-old German Shepherd who arrived at VSP headquarters in early March.

He’s already started training, and this summer he’ll hit the road to become one of the 15 patrol dogs in VSP’s canine ranks.
