It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of one of our retired K-9's.

We wish his family the best in this difficult time. 


Hunter is retiring after a seven-year career. He was deployed 903 times for detection and patrol assistance, the department said.

Hunter assisted 25 agencies with tracking and K-9 demonstrations.

He also assisted with building, human and evidence searches, leading to 36 arrests and over 500 indications of drug presence. In August, Hunter helped officers locate a robbery suspect in Gurnee.

“Canine Hunter provided invaluable assistance to the Gurnee Police Department and other departments,” the department said.
