JAMESTOWN – One of the Jamestown Police Department’s newest K-9’s suddenly passed away Saturday.
K-9 Promber, who was partnered with Officer Erik Kraft, died early Saturday morning, according to the Chautauqua Blue Lives Matter group.
K-9 Promber joined Jamestown Police last year.
He was named in honor of retired JPD Detective Stephen Promber, who passed unexpectedly in March of 2019 due to a medical emergency.
“His presence, though only felt for a short time, was lasting and will be remembered and honored forever,” wrote Chautauqua Blue Lives Matter in a post on social media. “Rest easy, Promber. You’ve earned it, good boy.”
In his brief time with JPD, K-9 Promber was involved in numerous searches and operations.
