New Jersey: Young woman recognized for quietly tending the grave of Washington Township's first K9 officer

NEW JERSEY -- Washington Township Police Department added 3 new photos to Facebook on May 27, 2017 ·

We would like to thank a new friend of the Washington Township Police Department.

We recently learned that Emily Reed goes out of her way to tend to the grave site of K-9 Wicko. K-9 Wicko was the first K-9 officer in Washington Township and his human partner was Officer Frank Rossnagle.

When she is able, Emily places flowers on Wicko’s gravesite, clears snow and any other debris. We have seen fresh flowers on the grave site in the past and it was always a mystery who placed them there.

We recently met with Emily at K-9 Wicko’s gravesite to present her with a certificate of appreciation. She is a great human being and her selflessness and kindness overwhelmed the members of the Washington Township Police Department. We were honored to meet someone with such compassion.
