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.
