    Fallen K-9 heroes of 2016


    In honor of National Police Week, the National Police Dog Foundation honors all K-9s that have fallen in the line of duty during 2016. In an effort to showcase our appreciation for these K-9s, the NPDF will send each of their department heads a letter of remembrance for their fallen K-9. They will also receive a copy of the iconic photograph of a K-9 in front of the Law Enforcement Memorial Wall. The photo is from the art photography book Solemn Vow, taken by well-known author/photographer Jim Corbett. Jim donates all proceeds of the book to the aid of active and retired K-9s. The department heads will then present, on behalf of the NPDF, the plaques to the handler of each fallen K-9 as tokens of our gratitude for their service.
