After poring through suggestions from local students, Waterloo Regional Police have come up with a shortlist of possible names for their two new canine recruits.

Now it’s up to you.

Online voting to choose the names for the new police dogs is open to the public through the weekend.

A black German shepherd will be named Max, Rex or Tracker, while a brown German shepherd will be known as either Grim, Kole or Leo.

The winning names will be selected Monday.
