Loss of Phoenix Police Department K9 "Bane"

The Arizona Law Enforcement Canine Association (ALECA) / Desert Dog Police K9 Trials are sharing in the grief of our Law Enforcement K9 Community over the tragic loss of Phoenix Police K9 “Bane.” K9 Bane, a three-year-old Belgian Malinois that served with the Phoenix Police K9 unit for about two years, was killed while apprehending a carjacking suspect in Phoenix on April 17th, 2018.

At this time, out of respect to Bane’s Handler, family and friends, and The Phoenix Police Department and their K9 Unit, we are referring inquiries about donations, tributes, and condolences regarding Bane’s death directly the Phoenix Police Department K9 Unit through the Phoenix Police Foundation at https://www.phxpolicefoundation.org/k-9-supporter.html

Bane’s name will be added to the Arizona Police K9 Memorial in Phoenix. The Arizona Law Enforcement Canine Association established and maintains the Arizona Police K9 Memorial, near the Arizona Peace Officer Memorial, at Wesley Bolin Plaza in Phoenix. The Memorial recognizes all Law Enforcement K9s lost in the line of duty in Arizona.
