On Saturday May 20, 2017, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., the Portland Police Bureau's Canine Unit will be hosting an open house and dedication ceremony for the newly created Canine Memorial.

The memorial is located in front of the Canine Unit office and public safety building at 4735 East Burnside Street, formerly known as Southeast Precinct.

A brief dedication ceremony will be held from 11:30 to 11:45 a.m. Members of the public are invited to attend and share in the dedication ceremony. A flyer is attached for download and sharing on social media.

This memorial project was made possible through countless hours of work by local artist Richard A. Moore III, as well as many generous donors, including the Portland Police Historical Society and Advantis Credit Union, following the tragic shooting death of Portland Police K-9 "Mick" in 2014.

* Meet the entire PPB Canine Unit

* Refreshments and snacks provided by Boyd's Coffee and Jazzy Bagels
* PPB Honor Guard to present colors

Parking located at the Portland Montessori surface lot at Southeast 50th Avenue and Couch Street behind the precinct.

Please join us as we conclude Police Memorial Week 2017 to honor our canine partners who gave the ultimate sacrifice while serving the citizens of Portland.
