Remove police dog from care of officer accused of punching him
THIS IS EURO
K-9 units have become an increasingly important part of police forces around the country. The dogs that aid in police investigations do important work and are worthy of respectful, humane treatment–so why does the Fort Myers Police Department continue to allow one of its dogs, Euro, to be cared for by an owner whose treatment violates department guidelines? Sign the petition and request that the Fort Myers Police Department assign Euro a new human partner.
In reference to recent media regarding our police K-9 Euro, please know that the complaint was taken with great concern and investigated thoroughly. In addition, Euro was removed from the officer%u2019s care during the investigation. Euro was evaluated by a veterinarian as well as an outside police K-9 trainer. There were no signs of physical abuse and no documented history of abuse with Euro, the officer%u2019s previous police K-9 or his family pets. The K-9 trainer recommended the officer and Euro to participate in structured remedial training. Euro was just recertified and the team is performing well together and to appropriate police standards. I will continue to monitor their progress. I stand by our investigation that was thorough, transparent and fair. The investigations are public record and open to inspection. Thank you for your email and I will continue to monitor closely.
Chief Doug Baker
