TAMARAC, FLA. (WSVN) - It’s time for training for two four-legged hounds on the force.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office welcomed two 12-week-old bloodhound pups to the Tamarac District’s force.

The department posted a picture on Twitter on Tuesday of the new team members with their handlers.

The bloodhounds will start their training to locate missing people.

They were donated by the Jimmy Ryce Center, created by Don and Claudine Ryce after their son Jimmy was kidnapped, raped and killed in 1995.

The foundation has donated hundreds of bloodhounds to law enforcement agencies all around the U.S.
