They awaited this magnificent K9 in front of Blanchard Valley Veterinary Clinic. Everyone was devastatedly moved by this event, but Jeremy and his family were particularly affected. Tommy was placed on a stretcher and driven to the automobile.

Officers and their canines remained still as they observed a moment of silence to remember their fallen comrade.

Jeremy and his family suffered great loss.

The last to bid Tommy farewell were Jeremy and his family. When they last saw him, they were all inconsolable.

During their farewell, the final call went over the radio.

“Officer Tommy, you were a devoted companion to 3280. We appreciate you defending your mate and the people of Ohio by being a good guy. Your time on duty is now over. Good sleep. Despite your passing, we will never forget you.

Rest Well, Tommy

Ohio officers were touched by this emotional farewell. Tommy’s watch ended, leaving them in tears.
