Bosco, a longtime K9 officer with the Muskogee Police Department, was put to sleep today by a veterinarian after an illustrious career with the police.

Bosco was responsible for getting many dangerous criminals off the streets, and for helping keep them off.

Police lined up outside the vet’s office to pay their respects to a valued officer who was given the humane end he had earned.

The police released the following statement:
Bosco was born in June of 2006, he began his career at the Muskogee Police Department with then-Officer Bill Peters in 2008 until he retired in 2014. Bosco was also a member of the Special Operations Team.

Bosco served with pride and distinction with his handler Lt. Peters, including being awarded k9 officer of the year in 2013 by OBN.

Bosco made countless drug arrests and apprehensions during his service to our community, which ultimately kept officers and our community safer. No officer was ever injured when Bosco and Bill were involved.

We can’t thank bosco enough for the service, dedication, drive, courage, friendship that he showed us. We are thankful to have had him as part of our team, and becoming part of our family.

He will be missed by the officers who served with him, and will be dearly missed by the Peters family, with whom he enjoyed his retirement.

We would also like to thank all of the officers involved today in giving Bosco the proper hero’s farewell, and Muskogee Fire Department, Muskogee County EMS, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and Muskogee County Sheriff’s Department, and Rock Lemley from the 911 center for providing Bosco’s last call on he radio.

He will be truely missed by everyone who was a part of his life.
