CHANDLER, Ariz. -- A police dog left in his handler's vehicle was found dead after the Chandler officer returned to the vehicle.

Chandler police say the Belgian Malinois named Bandit apparently died of the extreme heat.

According to police, Sgt. Tom Lovejoy returned home Saturday after completing a duty assignment and apparently forgot that Bandit was in the vehicle. He found Bandit dead, say police, when he returned to the vehicle later in the day.

A k9 cop who always has the dog with him suddenly forgets. That poor dog. I hope he doesn't get another one.

A cop last year did this with TWO mals at separate times and they still gave him a THIRD mal. Talk about a stupid department.
--------
a few others

Ciro, a Belgian Shepherd police dog, died Wednesday afternoon after the air-conditioner in a police car failed, according to the New Bern Police Department.

David Daniels, New Bern Police K-9 officer, was in Craven court for two hours, according to New Bern Police Capt. Alex Setzer.

The dog was left with a bowl of water in a locked patrol car with the motor running and the air conditioner on. High temperatures Wednesday were in the low 90s.

A drug-sniffing police dog died from heat exhaustion after his human partner left him in a parked car.

The death of Will, a Belgian Malinois, is the result of a mistake by his handler, said Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit Commander Bill Berry.

We hear of this year after year. It's heart breaking and inexcusable. I hope that any police officer who is complicit in the death of his/her canine companion through negligence is held to the same level of jurisprudence any of us would be held to. As a dog lover, this makes me livid.

I heard something like the police are going to start charging people (negligent homocide) who leave their children in hot cars, because it happens all too frequently.
What are they going to charge this cop with?
I hope they charge him with something......

When I hear of something like this - a pet or, God forbid a child, being left in a hot car, I wonder if they would have forgotten a 6 pack or a dvd from the local Block Buster. This just makes me sick.

They should be charged with negligence and cruelty and have to pay for a new dog, not the taxes payers
