Police Service Dog Passes Away

It is with great sadness the Eureka Police Department announces the passing of Police Service Dog Reno. Reno was recently diagnosed with an aggressive auto immune disease. Reno was Sgt. Mike Werges’ second K-9 partner and proudly served the citizens of Eureka from 2012-2019. Reno was certified in both patrol and narcotics detection by the North American Police Work Dog Association. The team won multiple awards together over the seven year span including being named the top narcotics detection team by the German Shepherd Dog Club of St. Louis in 2013. Reno conducted hundreds of searches during his career and visited with thousands of citizens.

Sgt. Werges would like to thank Dr. Greise and the staff at My Vet Animal Clinic for taking great care of Reno. A special thank you to everyone who has supported the K-9 program over the years.

In 2017 Sgt. Werges received the North American Police Work Dog Association Trainer of the year award. The Eureka Police Department has hosted 10 North American Police Work Dog Association State Workshops and 3 National Workshops in the last 13 years.

The Eureka Police Department K-9 Program was formed in 1993. Reno was the fourth K-9 to serve the community in the units 26 year history.

Rest in Peace Reno, you did your job well.
