    Southwick's 1st K9 Thom

    Retired K-9 Thom lost his battle with cancer and passed away on November 15, 2009. Thom was diagnosed with cancer shortly after doing his part at Ground Zero, as was many dogs who served, following the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. Thom did not go easy and put up a great fight, showing the true traits of a Police K-9. He was the last surviving dog from his group that served ar Ground Zero. Thom's partner, Joseph Brewer now works for the Wilbraham, MA Police Department. R.I.P. Thom. You will be missed.

    Fort Myers Police Department
    Police Officer K9 ROSCO
    End Of Watch: 09-07-10

    Police Officer K9 ROSCO, 4, was shot and killed while chasing an armed robbery suspect. A call came in from a citizen who was sitting at the drive-through and saw employees laying on the floor of a McDonald's. The call went out as a possible ro...bbery in progress. The Fort Myers Police arrived on the scene and immediately gave chase as the robbers fled the rear door. One of the suspects, 17 year old Kamyn Jodeci William Bright, then turned around and began shooting at the Officers. K-9 Rosco was then shot by the gunman as he tried to protect his fellow Officers. Rosco's handler and partner Officer Glenn Thompson and another Officer continued the foot chase and were forced to shoot and kill the teen. His partner in crime, 30 year old Gilberto Amaya, fled in his vehicle and while doing so, struck Police Officer K-9 AXE, who is 9. The Police gave chase for nearly 20 minutes at a high rate of speeds and eventually Amaya crashed his vehicle and was then arrested. A third suspect, 21-year-old Leandro Fermin who was an employee at the fast-food joint had left the back door opened in this planned robbery. He too has been arrested.

    Police Officer K-9 Rosco died on the way to the hospital. Police Officer K-9 Axe (pronounced OX) is recovering slowly but steadily.

    Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Glenn Thompson, his family and to all the Men and Women of the Fort Myers Police Department. Special get well prayers are also with Police Officer K-9 AXE.

    ROSCO, you have served your time loyally, respectfully, courageously and with a soul of a warrior. You have taught your 2-legged counterparts so much and for this, your legacy shall always be passed on. WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU. As you cross over the rainbow bridge and stand guard at the gates, may you always keep your keen senses watchful over us all.

    Rest with peace now Police Officer K-9 ROSCO ... We have the watch from here.

    Gloucester Twp. Police Dog Killed By Robbery Suspect

    BLACKWOOD, NJ (CBS/AP) — A police “K-9″ dog was killed Tuesday evening after being thrown into traffic by a robbery suspect he had chased down.

    Skyler Robinson, 20, was taken into custody after an overnight hunt, and a second suspect, 19-year-old Evan Scotese, was taken into custody at his home Wednesday morning.

    Police say the dog, a 3½-year-old German Shepherd, was on duty for Gloucester Township police when they responded to a burglary call at a Chinese restaurant on East Church Street in Blackwood.

    Rest easy, Officer Schultz
    Shitbag may actually do some time here. Animal cruelty usually yields some time, unlike crimes against persons.

    Police K9 Officer ZARAK
    End Of Watch: 12-28-10

    K9 Officer Zarak, 8, has succumbed to health related issues while on duty. While attempting to work a traffic stop, Handler/partner Officer Alex VanDerLinden knew straight away that something was not right. K9 Zarak had been not quite himself ...during the shift and when the duo went to their next call, K9 Zarak didn't respond as he normally would. He didn't get up from the vehicle. Officer VanDerLinden rushed his partner to the vet hospital where it was discovered the 4-legged Warrior's intestines had gotten twisted. Sadly, just a few hours later, K9 Zarak had to be put down as there is no chance of reversing this condition.

    Earlier in the year, K9 Zarak, who had been Serving and Protecting for the last 6 1/2 years had undergone stomach surgery but had been doing well and was back at work doing what he does best. This pure bread German Shepherd worked as a multi-purpose dog. He was called upon to do building searches, missing persons, narcotics and gang enforcement, crowd control and even loved doing his part in community events including being an integral part of the D.A.R.E. program. K9 Zarak did all this and more with no hesitation nor reservation. Always ready at the calling and he loved his job. His Loyalty, Faithfulness and Courage even earned him a rare opportunity as he was even called upon for service with the Northern Illinois Police Alarm System’s Emergency Services Team (S.W.A.T. Unit). Living his life as only a Hero Could.

    Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to his partner Officer VanDerLinden and his family as well as to all the Men and Women with the Streamwood Police Department, NIPAS and the entire community who grew to love and respect this amazing and integral member of the force.

    K9 Zarak, as you cross over the Rainbow Bridge, may you look back with pride knowing you served the People well. As you stand guard at the Gates, please continue to watch over us all, both 2 legged and 4, as we carry on in the battle ... In Our Brother's Honor. We Thank-you for your service and we will Never Forget you.

    Rest In Peace Police K9 Officer Zarak ... We have the watch from here. Job Well Done.

    Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
    Allegheny County Police Department


    Police EOD K9 Officer CHESTER
    End Of Watch: 12-29-10


    K9 Officer Chester, 7 yrs 10mos, succumbed to health related issues while on duty. On Tuesday, the day prior, Allegheny County Police Officer Chris Ireland had taken his K9 partner Chester to be treated for a kidney infection. ...However, when blood tests and x-rays came back with negative results for other ailments and after given some antibiotic, K9 Chester was cleared to return for work. Although a bit of expected lethargy was somewhat apparent, Officer Ireland and his ever-faithful partner went to work their night shift at the airport. The evening went fine until the near end of shift when K9 Chester began to pant heavily. This was not normal for this Warrior. Ofc. Ireland went back to the station to let everyone know what was going on and that he was headed straight to the emergency vet. In just the few short moments, Chris returned to K9 Chester only to find him in extreme distress and when he tried to get the dog's attention, our 4-legged Brother simply slumped over. Distraught, Ofc. Ireland wasted no time in getting the K9 to the vet where they immediately began CPR efforts including numerous epinephrine shots ... to no avail. Police K9 Officer Chester had already succumbed. It is now believed by the vet that an aneurism is the cause of his death and that his final breath was in fact taken when Chris held him in his hands while still at the station.

    Officer Ireland and K9 Chester have been partners for nearly six years. It was a first for the both of them and they were the perfect match. Together, they worked at the Pittsburgh Airport where K9 Chester, a pure bred German Shepherd, would put his nose to the ground and work tirelessly as an Explosives Ordnance Disposal (EOD) K9 who would search unattended luggage, packages and anything else that appeared to be a threat in search of specific odors. In between sniffing out evil, this team would travel to schools, businesses and work sporting events ... all for the safety of the People and for nothing more than his 'Kong' toy and knowing his partner was happy with him.

    K9 Chester was undoubtedly an integral part of this Department and his unconditional love of his family, Blood and Blue was evident. With his willingness to approach the potential dangers while all others backed away coupled with courage, enthusiasm and selflessness, K9 Chester was everything and more, finely representing all our canine counterparts. The people of Allegheny County were blessed to have him and we will forever be grateful for his service. We will Never Forget how this Warrior lived his life as only a Hero could. We thank you K9 Chester and we will never forget you.

    K9 Chester leaves behind his handler/partner Officer Chris Ireland, his beloved bride Officer Amy Ireland, who also works with the ACPD at the airport, and their family. Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to the Ireland family, the entire EOD K9 Division and to all the Men and Women of the Allegheny County PD.

    K9 Chester, as you cross over the Rainbow Bridge, may you look back with pride knowing you served the People well. As you stand guard at the Gates Of Heaven, please continue to watch over us all, both 2 legged and 4, as we carry on in the battle ... In Our Brother's Honor.

    Rest In Peace Police EOD K9 Officer CHESTER ... We have the watch from here. Job Well Done.

    "It is not only the HEROES with 2 legs that were born with a soul that has COURAGE TO WEAR THE BADGE." ~Nessie~

    The EOD K-9 Division buried K9 Officer Chester this morning at the police canine cemetery.

    **This story may not have been written if not for the love and devotion of Officer Amy Ireland and her wanting to comfort her beloved husband. As our Sister told me of the events, she even laughed at one point, reminded of how Chris was so inseparable from Chester that he was in Texas at Lackland Air Force Base getting Chester when she went into labor and delivered their first child. Most of the words you read here are the words of Amy as she had the strength and courage to tell me of this Hero. This was not just their family's dog, it was also their Brother. I thank you from my heart my Sister for sharing this with us all. You are not alone. You have a family of Blue and a lot of supporters. Thoughts are with your family, both blood and Blue. ~Nessie~

    Acclaimed Cape sleuth laid to rest

    WELLFLEET — A true Cape crime fighter died over the weekend at the ripe old age of 13.

    Beau, a man-trailing bloodhound involved in more than 100 cases since he first came to the Cape as a puppy in 1998, was euthanized on Saturday. He worked, and lived, with his handler, Wellfleet police Officer Jerre Austin.

    "We're very sad. He was a part of the family and he certainly made me proud," Austin said Monday. "He traveled all over the country with me, stayed in motel rooms and slept in the bed."
