Lakeland PD pays final farewell to retired K-9 officer

Lakeland police posted this video paying tribute to Remy, who had to be put down this week.

Lakeland police had to bid a sad farewell to a treasured member of the department this week -- a retired K-9 officer named Remy.

The 11-year-old dog was recently diagnosed with cancer, the department said in a Facebook post, and there was nothing to be done.

In a sign of respect to Remy, Lakeland K-9 officers, along with those from Winter Haven and Lake Wales, walked alongside him to the vet's office and waited outside.

The department also posted a tribute video on its Facebook page.

Remy retired in 2016.
