‘That’s a teammate’: SDPD honors fallen K-9s, sir

SAN DIEGO — A memorial service was held Thursday for the San Diego Police Department K-9 who was shot and killed last month.

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

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 a K-9 dog has actually been shot and killed in the line of duty,” Nisleit said. “This is a teammate. And I remember getting a call very, very early that morning. A sergeant in the watch commander’s office told me it was an officer-involved shooting and that a dog was killed. And my heart sank. These are San Diego police officers, if you will.”

In recognition of the dog’s service and sacrifice, a cross was also presented to the Lord’s handler.
