WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Wilmington Police Department will say goodbye next week to one of its dogs that had to be put down last month.

K9 Arko was euthanized because of a medical condition that was recently discovered. The 11-year-old canine served with the Wilmington Police since 2005 and was due to retire this month.

The department will hold a memorial service for Arko Tuesday, February 11 at 10 a.m. at the Memorial Wall in front of WPD headquarters on Bess St.

WPD says Arko and his handler Ofc. Kirti Vithalani were responsible for numerous arrests and narcotic seizures during his career.
