(August 8, 2019) It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Frisco Police Department K-9 Officer Boris, who ended his watch on Wednesday, August 7, 2019, due to a medically related issue. He was a 4 1/2-year-old Belgian Malinois. K-9 Boris was an integral part of our K-9 unit, the Frisco Police Department, and the community. At the time of his death, K-9 Boris was at a specialized police-dog training facility where he continued training and remained active while awaiting a new handler to be assigned.
K-9 Boris had been with the department for just over 2 years, having joined the Frisco Police Department in May of 2017. During his watch, K-9 Boris assisted in making 79 drug-related arrests, was used in over 100 narcotics sniffs per year, was deployed seven times for tracking suspects, and was successful in six no-bite suspect apprehensions.
A public ceremony honoring the life and service for K-9 Boris will be held on Monday, August 26, 2019. More details about the ceremony will be shared when they become available.
