Westbrook Officer Kerry Clark and K-9 Desi have been honored with the Patrol Case of the Quarter by the U.S. Police Canine Association Region 9.

“The pair were selected for their work on a track of a suspect on March 30 where the pair tracked from a vandalized vehicle approximately 1.25 miles through a heavily contaminated and busy section of town,” a press release said. “The pair tracked to the suspect’s residence where backup officers were able to confirm the identify of the suspect for the investigation. The awards committee made mention of Officer Clark’s ability to read her partner’s behavior and work through various roadway crossings, railroad tracks and even a rotary.”
