It is with great honor I announce the retirement of our first certified Police Canine, K9 Cliff. Cliff, a four year old German Sheppard at the time, joined the Department in December of 2007. On December 4th, 2007, shortly after joining the Department, Cliff and Ptl. Christopher Witts began the extensive 18 week Patrol Certification School as part of the 23rd Patrol Class of the NJSP Canine Training Academy. Ptl. Witts and K9 Cliff became the first certified PHPD K9 Team on April 3rd, 2008. As a sign of positive things to come, K9 Cliff’s first call for service resulted in the successful wooded area track of a burglary suspect and his ultimate surrender apprehension.
