K9 Taro 2K94 Evansville Police Department

Taro came to the Evansville Police Department from the Czech Republic. Taro, known in scanner radio traffic as 2K94, bonded quickly with his handler Officer Jared Reidford. K9 officers become a part of the family, as well as the officer's partner. So, this loss is extremely difficult for the Reidford family.

They are commonly used in the military and for police work because of their intelligence, agility, strong work ethic, and tracking ability.
