Slain Police Dog To Receive Full Police Honors In Memorial

From marconews.com

In an echo of the funeral for slain Fort Myers Police Officer Andrew Widman, Lee County law enforcers will gather Thursday to bid farewell to a partner gunned down in the line of duty.

This partner is a little different than most, however.

Rosco, a 4-year-old German Shepherd trained in narcotics and fugitive apprehension died of his wounds last week after he was shot by an armed suspect multiple times.

Officers shot and killed the teenage suspect during the chase.

Fort Myers Police Chief Doug Baker says Rosco deserves an honor commensurate with a fallen police officer.

“This isn’t a dog that died of old age or maybe unfortunate disease,” Baker said. “This dog got shot and killed by an armed robber. In my mind, it raises the bar.”
