Orange County Sheriff Carl E. DuBois announces the passing of K-9 Scout. K-9 Scout was a loyal partner and protector to his handler and trainer, Sergeant Dave Campbell.
K-9 Scout was a German Shepherd, one of 13 pups in the litter. K-9 Scout was selected at eight weeks old to enter the Police K-9 world. At 18 months of age, K-9 Scout placed fourth at the National Explosives Detector Trials in Minnesota.
K-9 Scout performed hundreds of searches for suspicious items, tracked multiple suspects who fled crime scenes, and was able to make thousands of friends with children throughout Orange County NY during his ten years of service while at K-9 demonstrations.
Our hearts go out to Sergeant Campbell, his family, as well as his extended family at the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. K-9 Scout, you will be missed. Rest easy, good boy.
