A K-9 serving with the Cocoa (FL) Police Department died Wednesday afternoon in the back of her patrol vehicle.

Cocoa PD said on Facebook that K-9 Zena’s handler checked on her during a training class at the Criminal Justice Center at Eastern Florida State College in Melbourne and found her dead.

An investigation is underway to determine the cause of death and if department policies and procedures were followed, according to Cocoa PD.

K-9 Zena, a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois, was donated to the department last August and was its newest patrol dog.
