K-9 Ozzy to be etched on memorial in Whitby


Published August 23, 2021 at 7:57 am

Retired Police Service Dog Ozzy can bark at the moon to his heart’s content after the celebrated K-9 passed over the Rainbow Bridge Thursday.

Ozzy served nine years – a long time in a dangerous business – and was responsible for multiple arrests over his distinguished career.

He was also a familiar face on a calendar Durham Police releases each year to raise money for charity.

Ozzy was surrounded by his handler, PC Jim Stephenson, and family when he died.

Ozzy will soon get his name etched on the Memorial Stone for all K-9 service dogs at the Durham Police Association headquarters at Conlin and Thickson roads in Whitby.

The memorial marks the incredible bond between handlers and their dogs, and the time they served together.
