SPECIAL REQUEST for patches and/or challenge coins. 

One of the things Ofc. Plum started for his kids is a collection of police (especially K9’s) patches and challenge coins.  We would love to continue that task for him. 

Services will be announced soon.  If you attend the services please bring a patch. There will be an area where you can leave them for the Plum children.  

If you are unable to attend please feel free to mail any to the care of Sgt. Bloomingdale at the Warrington Township Police Department 2330 Lower Barness Road Warrington, Pa 18976. 

We thank you in advance for your kindness, generosity, and support during this horribly unimaginable time.

On Monday morning, Warrington Township (Pennsylvania) Police Officer Stephen Plum, Jr. was inside of his home, getting dressed for his shift when he suffered a medical emergency. First responders attempted lifesaving measures but he was unable to be revived. Steve served the citizens of Warrington Township for 8 years, and was currently assigned to their K-9 unit. He leaves behind a wife, five children, who range from 14 years old to 18 months, and his faithful Dutch Shepherd K-9 partner “Murphy”.

Officer Stephen Plum was no stranger to public service. He was a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps and completed a combat tour in Iraq as a rifleman with the 2nd LAR Battalion, 2nd MARDIV. He also served as both a firefighter and EMT in Montgomery County. Ever since he was a child, all Steve wanted was to be a K-9 handler. In 2018, the determined officer presented the idea to his Police Chief of adding a K-9 unit to the department. Once approved, he and his wife were instrumental in helping to raise the funds that got the program off the ground. Plum and his partner “Murphy” were a highly decorated duo, earning numerous awards and commendations for their outstanding police service.

Last month, Steve’s close friend and fellow K-9 handler, Hatboro Police Officer Ryan Allen, passed away from complications following a bee sting. Stephen volunteered to help care for Ryan’s K-9 partner “Louie” while he was in the hospital, and even gave the Eulogy at Ryan’s memorial service. It would be difficult to find a more dedicated and committed K-9 Officer than Steve. He was 38-years old.

If you have any photos of Ofc. Plum while at a community event or just when he’d stop by to say hello please share here.  We are collecting as many photos and memories as we can for his family.

“We simply can’t believe that we are even posting this.  Steve, we will do everything in our power to make sure Nancy, your beautiful children, and of course K9 Murphy, are taken care of.  We love you.  Our community loves you.  We got your back.” Warrington Twp Police Department
