The Grand Rapids Police Department needs your help, but not to solve a crime.

They're getting a new K-9 and they want the community to help pick a name. The current dog, Czar, is retiring. The new German Shepherd will get to Minnesota this month.

Name suggestions will be accepted until March 16 on the police department's Facebook page.

From March 17 to March 24, people can vote on the final name for the dog.

The three finalists will get prizes including a photo, sweatshirt and gift card to Glen's Army Navy.

Police do not have a picture of the dog yet, but hope to post one soon to the Facebook page.
