"... It is with deep regret that the #NeWYork State #Police announces the unexpected death of #K9Amber .

K9 Amber passed away on February 2, 2023, at the age of 5. She joined the New York State Police on June 20, 2019, and was assigned to #Trooper Mark A. Castiglione Jr., out of Troop T, SP Albany. K9 Amber was named after Trooper Robert W. Ambrose who was killed on December 19, 2002, when his Troop car was struck from behind by a drunk driver traveling on the #NewYorkState Thruway in the city of #Yonkers .

K9 Amber was trained in #narcotics and #cadaver #detection ,  #tracking, and #handler #protection . She was recognized numerous times by local news agencies, highlighting her success and dedication throughout her #lawenforcement #career .

The #canine #cop was recently recognized for finding a big cocaine stash in a vehicle on the Thruway:

“K9 Amber was excited to assist her handler with locating over 14 ounces of cocaine, along with cash, during a traffic stop on the New York State Thruway in #MontgomeryCounty .”

We are always #grateful for our canine partners, their hard work and how they help us to serve and #protect you...."

#VestedInterestinK9s announces a #retirement for #Marysville #PoiceDepartment!
Have a great retirement #K9 Heiko!

"...After seven years of service, #police #dog Heiko has retired from #MarysvillePolice Department.

#MarysvillePoliceDepartment will have a ceremony to honor Heiko on at 7 p.m., Feb. 13 during the Marysville City Council meeting.

Public Safety #Deputy Chief Ed Gerrow said Heiko will be greatly missed at the police department.

“One thing we’ll miss is him tipping over our trashcans,” Gerrow said. “That was his signature move if you weren’t giving him enough attention.”

Heiko partnered with #Officer Justin Reeves. According to Reeves, Heiko has completed over 600 deployments during his career. Heiko has assisted Marysville Police Department in drug detection, suspect searches and arrests.

Heiko will now live with Reeves as a #family dog.

“He’s going from protecting the community to protecting the home,” Reeves said...."

K9 Persistence Pays Off! A VIK9s Calendar Celebrity, K9 Copper, aka: "Mr. June", finds missing Florida woman with dementia. DFC Steven Sella and K9 Copper of Charlotte County Sheriff's Office, FL were requested by the North Port Police Department on 1/30/23 to search for a missing 77-year-old woman who had on-set dementia. The woman had been missing for 7 hours and needed medication.

Dep. Sella deployed Copper and trailed for an hour but had to stop due to the hot weather conditions. Aviation continued to search the area but was unable to locate the woman. Sella and Copper deployed again later when the weather cooled and obtained a scent article from the woman’s residence using a Scent Evidence K9 Scent Kit. They worked the trail from the place the woman may have been sighted earlier in the morning. By this time the trail was 19 hours old. Copper trailed for several miles before coming to a stop. Dep. Sella took a moment to give his partner a break before resuming the trail at the last place Copper showed interest. They trailed through a neighborhood and eventually to a wooded area. K9 Copper walked to the edge of the woods and began air scenting into the brush. Dep. Sella was shining his flashlight into the woods and heard a female calling out from deep inside the woods. Copper worked into the wooded area and they located the missing woman in the thick brush, alert and alive. She was transported to a local ER and reunited with her family.

“This is an extremely hard job for a K9 team dealing with environmental challenges and the pressure of finding the woman who needed medication. Sella and K9 Copper never gave up and they used their training and trailing skills to overcome the obstacles and find the woman and bring her home safe,” stated Scent Evidence K9 CEO, Paul Coley.

Coley presented DFC Sella with his Master Handler Certificate last year for his prolific and lifesaving K9 search deployments with K9 Copper. Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office is a participating "Bringing The Lost Home Program" agency and they have multiple missing person recoveries and suspect locations to their credit. GREAT JOB Dep. Sella and K9 Copper on another find and THANKS to the CCSO for their commitment to creating a safer community.
