SDPD honors the fallen K-9, sir

SAN DIEGO — A memorial service was held on Thursday for San Diego police officer K-9, who was shot last month.

The dog, whose name was Sir, was killed in a police shooting on August 2 in Clairemont.

San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria and Chief David Nisleit attended the private service, along with members of the SDPD K-9 unit.

“This is the first time we’ve actually shot a K-9 dog while on duty,” Nisleit said. “This is a teammate. And I still remember getting a call very, very early that morning. A sergeant from the watch commander’s office tells me that an officer is involved and a dog has been shot. And my heart sank. These are San Diego cops, if you will.”

A cross was also given to Sir’s handler, in recognition of the dog’s service and sacrifice.
