Memorial service set for Adairsville K-9 officer who suffered injuries after escape

March 29, 2017 GMT

The Adairsville Police Department lost one of its K-9 Officers on March 25, 2017. K-9 Nero did not survive the injuries he sustained from being hit by a car.

Nero was secured in his kennel inside his handler’s home, as is the case whenever his handler is away for training. It would be pure speculation to try to determine what Nero was reacting to when he escaped from his kennel.

This was a tragic accident.

The Department will have a Memorial Service for K-9 Nero, which will be held on April 4, 2017 at 4 p.m. at NorthPointe Church, 30 Orchard Road, Adairsville, GA 30103.


The City of Adairsville and the Adairsville Police Department want to thank everyone for the incredible show of sympathy and support that the community has demonstrated during this very sad time.
