Harrisonburg Police Department announced the passing of a former K-9 Officer, Spartan
HPD is sad to announce the passing of retired Canine Spartan. Spartan served our community as a dual purpose police canine that was trained in narcotic detection and patrol utility. Spartan was teamed up with handler Chris Ray and worked from 2010 to 2015. Spartan retired from law enforcement in 2015 and has lived the retired life with Officer Ray until his passing of natural causes on July 5th.
We are celebrating Spartan’s life and are grateful for his service to this community.
