    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.

    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.

    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."

    Police Dog Stabbed and Killed in Washington State

    Clark County Sheriff dog Kane

    <!-- /hmedia -->A decorated sheriff’s dog was killed in the line of duty in Washington state early Saturday after he was stabbed trying to apprehend a suspect.
    The black Dutch shepherd, “Kane,” had tracked down a male suspect after he and a female accomplice driving a stolen car rammed a police vehicle and took off running.
    Kane, who was trained to bite and hold suspects, tracked down 31-year-old Keegan Graves. Deputies say Graves stabbed the dog numerous times.
    The dog was rushed to St. Francis Animal hospital in Clark County where he died from his injuries.
    A SWAT team later apprehended Graves and 22-year-old Natasa Cresap. Graves faces charges of harming a police dog, auto theft and attempting to elude a police officer, while Cresap was arrested on an outstanding warrant.
    Kane had worked with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office for six years and was scheduled for retirement in 2012.
    The dog and his partner, Deputy Rick Osborne, were one of the first K-9 teams certified by the Washington State Patrol and the DEA to be airlifted into marijuana groves, Q13fox.com reported Sunday.
    They worked to help in arrests and secure the area as ground units move in and helped officers seize more than 300,000 marijuana plants in 2008. Osborne and Kane received the Director's Award For Distinguished Service from the Office of National Drug Control Policy.

    Scituate Ma K-9 Felix RIP

    On Friday, August 12, Scituate Police Department's K9 Felix was laid to rest peacefully surrounded by those who knew and loved him after discovering on Thursday that he had advanced stage cancer throughout his body. Felix was an asset to the South Shore's law enforcement community as well as being an extended part of the Scituate Animal Shelter family. He and his partner Officer Brian McLaughlin have many apprehensions, location of missing persons and positive drug searches to be proud of. Felix and his partner routinely put themselves in harm’s way to protect the public. The shelter proudly sponsored Felix's routine annual medical care and we hope to continue supporting the K-9 program in the near future.
