Captain "Cez" Cezar
Birth: unknown
Death: Jun. 29, 2010
Arp
Smith County
Texas, USA

Captain Cezar, a K-9 officer with the Arp Police Department, died on June 29, 2010. He had recently been diagnosed with congestive heart failure. His fellow police officers chose to do the humane thing and have him put down.

Captain Cezar was originally being trained as a bomb sniffing dog for the U.S. Air Force but failed his "tech school". The Air Force's loss was the City of Arp's gain. He had served as a drug dog for the past seven years.

Assisting with the capture of the bad guy was not Captain Cezar's only role. He served as a community relations ambassador, primarily with elementary school children who thoroughly enjoyed his visits. He also participated in city festivals and other public events.

Captain Cezar was described as "amazing" by Arp Mayor Linda Jenkins. "He loved to work. He could be serious and really aggressive when he was working, but he could be the kindest, sweetest thing when he wasn't." He also competed in elaborate canine officer competitions, ranking as high as 11th out of 500.

Anticipating the public's reaction upon hearing of Captain Cezar's death, especially the children who so loved his visits, the officer's boss and caretaker, Police Chief Scott McAuley, said "It's gonna be bad. It really is."

Approximately 30 people, including the entire Arp Police Department, attended Captain Cezar's service. Also in attendance were several canine command officers from the local area. The city plans on placing a monument marking his burial location at a later date.
