The Bartlesville police department holds a memorial service for one of their own. Police, city workers and private citizens gathered to say goodbye to Cooper, the department’s drug dog.

Cooper died last month after consuming anti-freeze. Police are still investigating if he was poisoned. The department is still looking for a replacement dog.

Police Chief Tom Holland says Cooper had a successful record. “These drug dogs are more than just canines, they’re part of us. He did a marvelous job finding drugs. He was also a tracking dog. We’ve used him to successfully track people. So, this is going to be his day.”

An American flag was presented to Cooper’s handler during the service. Cooper’s ashes will be placed at the bottom of a flag pole outside the police station. It’s near a monument to officers killed in the line of duty.

The police chief says private funds paid for the memorial service.
