‘Dog Days of Summer’ Featuring K9 Cops on Troopers’ Facebook Page

Police work is a hairy job but more so for a certain core group of troopers.

New York State Police canines are now being featured on the Troopers’ Facebook page.

Two canines will be featured each day through the “Dog Days of Summer” campaign.  The dogs and their handlers will be introduced to the public, which will also learn where the dogs are stationed.

One interesting note is that NYSP canines are named after fallen members of the New York State Police.  The stories of those members will be featured as well to remember and honor them

WIBX will show the featured members each day.

Featured above are K9 “AJ” and his namesake, fallen Trooper Andrew Sperr.

AJ and his handler are stationed in Rochester.  AJ is trained in narcotics and cadaver detection.

AJ is named after Trooper Andrew Sperr who was killed on March 1, 2006.

Trooper Sperr, who was 33 years old and a ten-year veteran of the State Police, was shot as he approached a vehicle carrying suspects in a bank robbery in the Chemung County town of Big Flats.
