BROCKVILLE – The city’s policing community is mourning a former four-legged member of their force.

Trax, who worked with Sgt. Shawn Borgford during his nine years of service, has died at the age of 13.

The Belgian Malinois became an effective working partner in areas including tracking, drug detection, evidence recovery, handler protection and catching suspects.

“Police dogs become more than a partner, they become integrated into the handler’s family,” Brockville Police Service Staff Sgt. Todd Bertrand said. “Trax now joins Brock and Septor in our K9 Hall of Honour. Thanks for your years of service to Brockville, Trax!”

Flags are being placed a half staff today (Wednesday) to honour his life.
