Ceremony to honor police dogs killed in line of duty

By June 4, 2011

Law-enforcement agencies will pay tribute to California police K-9s lost in the line of duty at a June 15 ceremony at UC Davis.

The K-9 Faithful Partner Memorial Ceremony begins at noon at the California Police Dog Memorial, located near the UCD Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital.

Originally dedicated in 2002, the star-shaped black granite memorial honors more than 30 California police dogs who have died in the line of duty since 1960.

The memorial is sponsored by the Western States Police Canine Association.
