Atos is a Belgian Malinois. He was born
September 2, 2014.
Atos' partner and handler is Joe Seylani.
Atos is Covina's newest K-9 officer placed in service August 2018
Joseph Seylani was hired by the Covina Police Dept. in 2013 after earning his Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice. Officer Seylani worked a variety of assignments within the department such as Honor Guard and homeless outreach. Officer Seylani had the passion and aspiration to become a K9 Handler. After Covina Police acquired Jarno in 2015, Officer Selylani attended agitator school to train with Jarno and Officer Rassmussen. He built a foundation of knowledge, and first hand involvement which lead to his eventual position of Handler.
Thanks to our community and K9 Partners of Covina, in 2018 Officer Seylani's aspiration became a reality.
