WRPS saddened by the death of Police Service Dog

It is with deep regret that the Waterloo Regional Police Service announces the passing of Police Service Dog Titan, following a sudden illness. 
Titan, who became a member of the Service in May of 2015, was a 3.5 year old German Shepherd who loved his job and adored his handler. For the past two years, Titan and his handler have worked tirelessly together to train, perform demonstrations, and have enjoyed 18 successful captures.  Just recently, Titan located a suspect in the Fairview Park area who was armed with a knife.  
“Titan was a happy-go-lucky dog but also a capable resource for our Service,” said Bryan M. Larkin, Chief of Police. “He was a kind and loyal partner to his handler and together they were an upbeat and successful team.”  
Due to Titan’s good nature, he was also a hit in the community and would appear at events held throughout the Region. His loss will be felt across the Police Service and the entire Waterloo Region community. 
A dog can bring a special bond and we offer our sympathies to his handler and the entire Canine Unit team.
