K-9 Luna and SJCPD K-9 Program

On October 13th, 2020, Sgt. Parmelee and K-9 Luna with the Saint Joseph County Police Department assisted in the apprehension of a wanted subject.  During the apprehension, the suspect opened fire on officers.  K-9 Luna was struck by gun fire from the suspect.  Luna was shot in the right rear leg.  Luna was rushed to a local veterinary clinic, stabilized, and then transported to North Central Veterinary Emergency Center in Westville Indiana for further treatment.

K-9 Luna began her career with Sgt. Parmelee and the Saint Joseph County Police Department in January of 2020.  Sgt. Parmelee and K-9 Luna began the rigorous training process.  After successfully completing their training, K-9 Luna and Sgt. Parmelee began working the midnight road patrol.  K-9 Luna and Sgt. Parmelee have already been involved in several apprehensions since their short time on the midnight road patrol.  

Donations will go towards K-9 Luna's medical expenses and any remaining funds will go towards the Saint Joseph County Police Department K-9 fund with FOP #155.
