K-9 Memorial Ceremony

The Police Officer Assistance Trust held its first K-9 Memorial Ceremony at Tropical Park on February 19th honoring the nine faithful partners that have died in the line of duty while serving the Miami-Dade community.  Their handlers reflected on how these devoted companions worked tirelessly to protect the officer and anyone else in harm’s way.  Countless lives have been saved since law enforcement began using these astute and agile four-legged creatures.

We would like to offer our thanks to Channel 10 anchor Jacey Birch, keynote speaker Miami-Dade Police Department Major (Retired) Greg Terp, and all who participated in the occasion.  Click here to view the story which aired on Channel 10 news.

 
K9 Memorial

Born to love
Trained to serve
Loyal to the end
Our nation’s finest
We serve our master
Faithful to the end
An officer’s extra sense
To guide and protect
Your eyes in the dark
A nose for danger
A partner faithful beyond words
