The K9 unit of Elizabeth Township Police Department celebrates the 3rd birthday of Officer Eli on March 24 at Elizabeth Forward Middle School. The well-behaved but lovable German Belgium Shepherd mix not only had his birthday, but a "pawty" to celebrate.

Officer Novacek, Eli's guardian and trainer, demonstrated Eli's progress in training during the event. While giving Eli's commands in German and Dutch, Officer Novacek also allowed pictures and answered any questions the audience had.
In addition to the guest of honor and his guardian, there were raffle gift baskets, 50/50, a DJ and activities for the kids, which included face painting, coloring pages, and two fire trucks. Free hot dogs, drinks, cheese fries, and cupcakes were provided to all who attended. Officer Eli wasn't left out, as he was provided with his very own ice cream cake, donated by Frosty Cone.
T-shirts were available for purchase to help raise funds for the Elizabeth Township Police Department K9 and equipment fund.
Happy birthday, Officer Eli!
