Chief Holbrook stated in an earlier release, “K-9 Rio was a loyal and faithful K-9 to the HPD and the citizens of Huntington. K-9 Rio not only helped keep our officers safe, but was equally instrumental in our community drug eradication efforts. The HPD K-9 Unit currently has six other K-9’s in service. It is the intention of the department to immediately begin the process of replacing K-9 Rio and returning the K-9 Unit to its full compliment.”
Council committed about $3,500 in micro-grant monies to help replace the animal with a newly trained one.
Outside, the officers showed HNN one of the four legged dogs that fight crime for a pat and a scratch.
On Wednesday, May 15, the Law Enforcement Memorial Day temperance begins at 11 a.m. at Harris Riverfront Park. Police Chief Skip Holbrook indicated that the city’s first officer to fall in the line of duty, Issac Mitchell, will be specifically honored. After years of searching, the department has located a photo of Mitchell which will be added to the fallen heroes wall.
The public is invited.
