PoliceLink K9 Officer Down Remembers...



K9 Tracker
Alabama Department of Corrections

Alabama


End of Watch: Monday, July 7, 2014



Biographical Information:
Breed: Beagle
Origin: Not Available
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Tour of Duty:  Not Available


Cause of Death: Gun; Unknown Type
Incident Date: Wednesday, April 16, 2014
Weapon: Gun; Unknown Type
Suspect: Shot and Wounded


 


K9 Tracker was shot and killed near Skipperville, while assisting other agencies during the search of a man wanted for first degree child rape and incest.


Two canine tracking teams from the Alabama Department of Corrections had responded to assist deputies with the Dale County Sheriff's Office in the search for the suspect, who had been hiding in woods near his home for several days. An Alabama Department of Public Safety helicopter had located the subject in an area near County Road 33 and County Road 70 and directed a team of officers, including K9 Tracker, to the location.


The subject started to flee as officers approached, and Tracker began to pursue him. The man opened fire on Tracker and Deputies, killing him, before being wounded by return gunfire. He was taken into custody and faces additional charges of attempted murder of Law Enforcement Officers, with charges pending for the death of Tracker.


K9 Tracker was a beagle assigned to the Ventress Correctional Facility.


 


Condolences may be sent to:
