According to the Cobb County Police Department Facebook Page, officers were attending scheduled active shooter training at the school when K-9 Chase was found unresponsive in the patrol vehicle. Cobb County police officers and Cobb County Fire personnel began life-saving measures, but the efforts were not enough to save him, and he succumbed to his heat-related injuries.
The officer who left Chase in the vehicle needs to be disciplined. There was no reason to leave Chase in the car - could he not have been brought inside, out of the head and the sun?
