The Long Beach Police Department in California has announced the death of one of its own: K-9 officer Ozzy, a German Shepherd mix, died last week after being left in a hot patrol vehicle.

The LBPD announced Ozzy's passing on the department's Facebook page Friday, clarifying that "preliminarily we believe this was an accident and we are taking all the necessary steps to avoid this from happening in the future."

In the press release, officials explained that Ozzy died on Aug. 14, and was discovered by his handler at approximately 3:40 p.m. "At the time of his death, Ozzy and his handler were both off-duty and Ozzy was inside the officer's department issued K-9 vehicle," the release read. "Our K-9 vehicles are outfitted with fail/safe equipment that is meant to generate an alert. At this time, we believe this alert may not have been working."



Comments:
My question is whether the PD will "take care of it's own"or bring up Cruelty To Animal Charges against this off-duty officer?
Looks like their "fail/safe equipment" failed. Hummmmm. RIP Ozzy, you didn't deserve to die this way.
