A Lebanon Pennsylvania Police Department dog has died after becoming ill during the Lebanon Holiday Parade. Police Chief William Harvey said yesterday that a German shepherd named Dromedav, who was known as Drome, became ill while on duty at the Nov. 22 parade. He died during emergency surgery later that afternoon of an unforeseen medical condition.
Drome was born in Hungary on Jan. 3, 2000. He was brought to the United States by Castle's K-9s of Mechanicsburg, where he was trained in patrol and narcotics detection. Patrolman Brett Fisher and Drome graduated from a 230-hour course on Dec. 2, 2002, and Drome was then sworn in as a K-9 with the city police force. In his six years of service, Drome completed more than 150 school searches and took part in more than 100 K-9 demonstrations, public appearances and special events.
In the line of duty, Drome participated in more than 500 police incidents with several municipal, state and federal agencies in central Pennsylvania. "K-9 Drome and Patrolman Fisher were instrumental in removing countless amounts of narcotics and illegal drugs from Lebanon County," Harvey said in a news release. "The LCPD and his partner, Officer Brett Fisher, mourn the loss of Drome for his service to the city and his loyalty."
