Arizona PD K-9s Get Badges

Members of the Prescott Police K-9 Unit who've been on the force fighting crime and enforcing the law for some time will finally be getting badges to wear. Not the officers -- the dogs, reports azcentral.com.

Prescott police say local resident Penny Kramer donated the funds for the K-9 badges as a memorial to her late father, who worked with K-9s for the Yuma County Sheriff's Office.

K-9s Cory and Hercules were the first two dogs on the Prescott police force to get their shiny new badges.

The Prescott Police Department says it hopes to keep the K-9 badges a tradition.

Each dog gets a unique badge and badge number that will retire with the dog. Cory got badge number K9-1, and Hercules K9-2.

Terrific! I provided badges for the K9s at Tacoma PD in Washington state. They are identical to the human officer's badges except they have K9 Officer on them. The K9s actually looked proud of them. The public, especially the kids, think its great to see them with their badges too.

Great! I do think that the dogs will like them, as you can tell with your own dog, if you take the collier off or put it on they know that it belongs to them. Im sure it will be one more example to them when "play time" (work) is starting when they put the badge on, like the rest of us LEOs.

That's great. They are the best, most dedicated, loyal, & unconditional Partner an Officer can ever have. The Badge rounds their significance out. It displays to the public & thugs alike that they are official.
