Officers and citizens from cities and towns across northern New Jersey lined the streets as a procession was conducted for a K-9 who died suddenly in the line of duty.

According to the Daily Voice, K-9 Jada—a five-year-old Belgian Malinois that had served with the Hackettstown (NJ) Police Department since 2016—suffered an abrupt and unexpected medical episode while on duty in late August.

K-9 Jada died at a nearby animal hospital shortly thereafter with Officer Christopher Laver—her handler—by her side.
