The National Police Service Dog Monument
Being a dog handler can be one of the most dangerous jobs on a police department. Dog handlers and their K-9 partners attend high risk – in progress calls on a daily basis. Thankfully, on most occasions they make it home safe and sound. This is largely to do with the exceptional abilities of their 4- legged partners. This page is a tribute to our brother and sister K-9 handlers and their canine partners that didn’t all make it home at the end of the day.
On the accompanying pages you will see three categories:
Police Officers killed in the line of duty
Police Dogs killed in the line of duty and
Honour Roll - For a complete list of Service Dogs that have died while on active duty as Police Service dogs from both injuries and illnesses.
