MORE ABOUT VADER
Career Stats: K-9 Vader began working for the Sunny Isles Beach Police Department in November of 2016, and he retired in August of 2018. During his career, Vader served his community with the upmost dignity and was recognized by his community and other surrounding agencies. Vader was involved in numerous missions, where he searched for both violent offenders and explosives. Additionally, K-9 Vader was an article dog who located items discarded by offenders.
Vader located and apprehended eight subjects in his career (he had to use force with three of them and five of them he caught without force), located one firearm used by a felon that was stolen, and conducted over thirty explosive searches. We are honored to be covering all of Vader's medical costs, food costs, and any other costs that would have been the responsibility of his handler. Giving Vader a proper retirement is the least we can do after all he did during his career.
