Toledo K-9 and a suspect are dead after a standoff that lasted for hours.

Police say the call came in around 5:30 PM in the 1100 block of Earl St.

It started as an attempt to pull over a suspected stolen vehicle.


Very sad. Sometimes I think that our k-9 friends are taken for granted. These animals train and do a wonderful job of helping our police officers. RIP Falko.

Believe it or not the Officer Down Memorial Page has a section for K-9's -

Welcome to ODMP K9

The Officer Down Memorial Page is furthering its mission of honoring all fallen law enforcement officers with the announcement of its newest memorial program: ODMP K9.

ODMP K9 honors the hundreds of police canines that have been killed in the line of duty serving alongside America's law enforcement officers. These loyal companions have given their lives to ensure their handlers, fellow officers, and citizens stay safe.

ODMP researchers are currently compiling details on fallen canines through history. Our current list is incomplete, so we are calling on all visitors to provide new or updated details about any police canine that has been killed in the line of duty in the United States by using our submission form.

ODMP - K9 Falko

K9 Falko was shot and killed while conducting a track of a subject wanted for murder who fled during a traffic stop of a stolen vehicle in the area of Varland Avenue and Woodville Road.

The subject and his passenger both fled from the vehicle and ran into a vacant home at 1137 Earl Street. The man opened fire on Falko and several officers after they entered the home. Falko was fatally wounded by the gunfire.

Officers on scene returned fire and killed the subject.

Falko had served with the Toledo Police Department for one year.

Its still a new feature however I agree with you. We do tend to take them for granted, or at the very least we don't view their death in any meaningful way. In my opinion anyways.. Hell some states killing a Police K-9 can be a felony (at the upper end in terms of crime / jail time)..

Thanks for posting this by the way.
