The Lafayette Police Department is mourning the loss of a beloved K-9 that passed away last night. Retired K-9 Tommy served the department’s canine unit alongside Officer Ron Dombkowski from 2008 to 2017. K9 Tommy was a faithful partner and companion.
During his time on the LPD, K9 Tommy was deployed over 800 times, assisted in over 390 arrests, participated in seizing over 40 pounds of narcotics, over $9,000 dollars, and four firearms. Since his retirement, Tommy has been a member of the Dombkowski family and has enjoyed long well deserved naps on the couch. K9 Tommy will be remembered for his hard work ethic and loveable nature. K9 Tommy died of natural causes and was 10 years old at the time of his death.
We respectfully request any donations or offerings of kindness be made the Lafayette Police Foundation K9 fund.
Sgt. AJ Mellady
