WTXF - Zero, a long-serving dog in the K-9 unit in the Camden County Police Department, died Monday, the department announced.
"On behalf of the entire Board of Freeholders, I extend my condolences to Lt. Zsakhiem James and the Camden County Police Department on the passing of K9 Officer Zero," Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli said in a statement.
"Zero was more than a K9 officer; he was an ambassador for the Camden County Police Department to the children of Camden. Zero and Lt. James helped build bonds with Camden's residents and children by doing countless demonstrations together at schools, parks and community events. Everywhere he went in the city, kids recognized him."
