Sheriff's office unveils memorial in Riverhead

K-9 Remembrance




Suffolk County Sheriff Errol Toulon, along with other members of Suffolk and Nassau counties’ sheriff’s offices, met at the unveiling Thursday morning of a memorial honoring the four-legged members of law enforcement.

Throughout the history of the sheriff’s office, K-9s have played a role in keeping the Suffolk County communities safe, both inside and outside of the correctional facilities.

K-9 “officers” Tobey, Smokey, Hans, Arras, Kalle, Roy, Bronco, Raider, Robby, Dewey, Patch, and Lady were memorialized October 17, with remarks by Toulon and Alan Croce, former and longest-serving chairman of the state Commission of Correction.

The memorial is located outside 100 Center Drive in Riverhead.
