We're currently contributing to the funding of a bronze K9 memorial statue in front of the Police Administration Building. The bronze K9 will lay upon a 7' high granite pedestal. A handler with his dog will be depicted in raised bronze on one side and the names of dogs killed in the line of duty on the opposite side.
Shown here is the Memorial Statue with Officer Steve Carnevale from this past November. The K9 team is working with the artist to make sure they are satisfied with the side relief on the statue. Once that is complete, the piece will be bronzed.
To honor K9s injured on the job, we have worked, in conjunction with the Los Angeles Police Foundation, to donate a substantial amount towards a statue that will be placed in front of the LAPD headquarters. While we provide K9s to the K9 units of LAPD, the Los Angeles Police Foundation makes donations to the entirety of the LAPD. We are happy to unite in saluting our fallen heroes, and cannot wait for the unveiling of this amazing statue. Check out this awesome video of it being made!
About 70% of the funding has been accounted for, and the artist has begun work. The location will be the Officer Memorial Plaza at LAPD Headquarters.
