The Maywood Police Department is honoring one of its own.
A memorial service was held Thursday for Police K-9 Remington, also known as “Remi.”
Remi was Bergen County’s first K-9 bloodhound. She helped to find hundreds of missing people over the last five years.
She died last month of pancreatic cancer.
"In a time where communication between the public and law enforcement would be a struggle, as a bloodhound with a calm and friendly disposition – and a dopey look – she was often able to bridge the communication gap by offering an ear to be scratched or a head to be pet,” says partner Detective Chris Nichols.
Nichols says that Remi also helped to keep the department on a diet by stealing food from officers’ desks.
