The History of the Plainfield Police K-9
The Village of Plainfield has had a Police K-9 unit since the late 1970’s through today’s date. In this time frame we have had (7) total police service dogs (K9 Luger, TJ, Brutus, Blackie, Foster and Aron), including our current K9 – K9 Kody who is 4 years old and has been patrolling the streets of Plainfield since May 2013. Many of the Police Officers who were the K9 handlers are still alive, but all the police service dogs, with the exception of K9 Kody have since passed. Three of the past police service dogs, K9 Luger, Blackie and TJ are currently buried under a large rock located on the property of the Plainfield Riverfront located at 24321 Lockport Street. At this very location use to stand a K9 agility field the police service dogs would utilize to train at. This field has since been removed, but the rock still remains. The Plainfield Police Department along with the Plainfield Riverfront Foundation has decided to honor the unity by building a K9 memorial at this location.
The proposed memorial, as shown in Phase One is a starting point for our project. The funds needed to complete the project in its entirety total $15,000. The projected unveiling for the memorial is Fall of 2016.
