"I've got 42 teeth with an attitude on a leash. Would you like to meet him?" ~ Wording on the back of a dear friend's off-duty jacket, a Caddo Parish Deputy Sheriff K-9 Handler
Alex served with his partner, Trooper Robert Schlegel, at SP Saratoga from May, 2002 until his retirement in January, 2013.
Alex, a bomb detection dog, and Trooper Schlegel were familiar fixtures at Albany International Airport, New York where their services were routinely required. Albany International was the first, and remains the oldest, municipal airport in the United States. Throughout his long career Alex was involved in the arrest of numerous criminals; his most noteworthy apprehension came in September 2005, after a two-day manhunt where he tracked and successfully captured an individual who had shot Trooper Sean Finn of Troop B.
New York State Police mourns the sudden passing of Officer Alex.
Don't Grieve For Me
Don't grieve for me I served you well.
I loved you more than you could ever tell.
I am now an angel in blue.
I laid my life on the line for you.
I wore my badge with honor every day,
To keep citizens safe and out of harms way.
So when you see a badge worn with pride,
Remember their comrades and friends that have died.
