In Memoriam: The Boston Police Department Mourns the Passing of Retired K-9, Dexter

In Memoriam: It is with deep regret that the Boston Police Department announces the passing of retired K-9, Dexter. He proudly served the Department for over 7 and half years, and retired in January of 2022. Dexter was certified as a Dual Purpose Patrol and Narcotics Detection K-9. Dexter was responsible for numerous high priority arrests, recovered firearms and narcotics during his time with the BPD, having a direct impact on the safety of our great city.

Dexter will be greatly missed by all at the Boston Police Department as we send our heartfelt condolences to his former handler and his family and loved ones during this tremendously sad and difficult time.
