WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – The Washington Township Police Department Monday announced the passing of retired K9 Arek who served with the department from 2013-2018.
During the time of his years of service, Arek assisted in drug investigations, tactical team call outs, missing person searches, and the tracking of crime scenes, police said.
As valuable as Arek was on the countless callouts, he will be most remembered for K9 demonstrations held in front of civic organizations, school groups, and during our department’s National Night Out community event, police said.
“We thank Arek for his service, will keep him in our thoughts, and send our condolences to his handler, Sgt. Bee,” police said.
