I'd think the officer would get fired at the very least. Those dogs are expensive. Usually they're imported from Germany and I've seen the cost for a trained dog go anywhere from $8000 to $20,000.

You know that if a regular person accidentally killed one of those dogs they would be charged with killing a police officer.

I am interested is several things
Temperatures at the time the dogs were left and at tge time they were found
Blood alcohol test on the officer
Why k9 car didn't gave a plug in module for when it is off that maintains the k9 emergency equipment which the car was equipped with... our cars have it.. theirs have it but no 110v plug in...

I read about this as it happened in the officer down notification that we get.

By all accounts this officer was highly skilled and trusted enough to get a second dog... which is unheard of for us.

Whatever the case...there is no room foe error for life
He must be held to account for his action... or fail to act.
I'm trying to think of a mitigating circumstance... and while I'll wait for the investigation this one is wrong on its face

I've left my dog in the car to go in the store for 15 mins and when I came out he was panting furiously like he was going to die. Took hours for him to finally cool down. Never did that again.

But this jerkoff left them in the car for 12+ hours and it was 88 degrees yesterday!!!!!!

This ahole needs to be charged with 2 first-degree murders because no way in hell he didn't do this on purpose.

I have an aquarium with two chubby fantail orandas in it.

And I take better care of them than a trained, armed law enforcement officer took of two DOGS.

Seriously. WTF is wrong with people?

I don't understand how this officer "forgot". This seems inexcusable on many levels. These dogs are his "partners"? WOW! He should be charged for something, at the least made to replace both dogs and pay for their training.

Absolutely sad. Those dogs were probably amazing dogs too and had to suffer a devastating death. Inside a car with the windows closed, no ventilation, and extreme heat in Florida from the hours of 6 or 7AM to 7PM. I assume the officer will get fired, or at the very least be removed from the K-9 unit.

I don't get it though... The officer had a midnight shift, probably came home extremely tired, the dogs were probably in the back of the car sleeping so he forgot to take them in, and the officer probably went straight to bed.

But assuming his midnight shift ended at 7AM or so, that means he would have slept around 12 hours without caring or attending to the dogs. That seems pretty negligent for someone who is on the K-9 unit.

Exactly my thought!

It's really not much different from a mother or parent leaving a child in the car! Those dogs were totally helpless and at his mercy.
