It is with deep sadness that Orange County Sheriff Carl DuBois announces the passing of K-9 Tok. Tok was the loyal partner of Deputy Sheriff and Special Operations Group (SOG) Operator Daniel Volpe, who served Orange County for six years.
Tok was born in Slovakia on Feb. 10, 2012 and was assigned to Volpe. Tok was trained and put into service as a Patrol K-9 with a specialty in Narcotics Detection. Tok answered the call for service numerous times throughout his career. Of those calls the most notable was locating a person who overdosed in the woods, and locating a suicidal person holding a knife, saving both their lives in the process.
Tok was the first Sheriff’s Office K-9 to be assigned to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Group. The Sheriff’s Office would like to extend its deepest condolences to Deputy Sheriff and SOG Operator Daniel Volpe and his family on the loss of their partner, friend, and family member.
