K-9 killed

https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/crim...y-wounded-k-9/

I opened my email to find a link and picture to this dog. What a pisser. The State Troopers lost another one back in September, and with that loss it put them at having just 6 dogs. I do not know if Help (the dog mentioned in the link below) was replaced or not.

https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/2016...f-duty-sunday/

I've mentioned before that the crime up here is growing with enormous leaps and bounds. It's a legitimate concern for many who live within the Anchorage bowl or surrounding cities. The drug abuse/crimes and gang related violence is rampant. Just as recent as Friday I was assaulted by a man high on meth.

Anyway, whether man or K9, this news always wells up anger in me.

What in your estimation is the cause of the rise in violence?

A combination of things, the two in the forefront: a statewide herion epidemic and SB91.

Have I mentioned lately how m uch I hate drugs and how they are absolutely ruining our culture/society? The prescription drugs are the worst thanks to the good ole merican AMA ...

Re: K-9 killed

Two within 6 months makes me pause. The number of dogs for the State Troopers was stated in previous article to be six. Two dogs killed from such a small number seems exceptionally high to me. But then again, I am not in touch with the statistics involving K-9 injuries and deaths. Can someone give me an idea if I am off base or not?

Re: K-9 killed

Not an expert on stats but two out of 6 seems way out of line especially considering the population per square mile in your State.

I think we had some 300+ murders in St. Louis last yr but I don't recall any K9s killed in the line of duty here recently other then one that I believe died from a fall while on duty.

I'm trying to find the stats on numbers of K9s in the area.

Maybe a dozen between City and County.

Re: K-9 killed

HORRIBLE

regardless of the statement that the dog was not required to be wearing it for 'regular' work, i sure hope the vest wasn't purchased as a result of lessons learned from the first K9 that was killed 'cause if it that were the case, there are prob a lot of people kicking themselves

these days there doesn't seem to be anything 'regular' about LE work

never trained with a ballistic vest but have with LLC harnesses. ballistic would seem to be a lot more rigid. the probs have always been comfort, K9 mobility and the pita factor. usually once the habit is formed, most of the factors diminish and it goes unnoticed


all i can say for the poor K9 is R.I.P.
we promise your death and service will not be in vain
