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.
