Koda, a beloved member of the Midvale Police Department K-9 squad, was killed by a man fleeing from police in January 2010. Now a new fund could help protect all canine officers.
Spend any amount of time with Midvale police officer Brian Todd, and eventually you’ll hear him talk to Falko. The 2-year-old Belgian Malinois is Todd’s K-9 partner.
“The dog is part of your family,” Todd said. “He’s your pet when you’re at home, and he’s your partner when you’re at work. We’re together 24 hours a day.”
