Bingo, after locating a suspect in a murder case in the Etobicoke area, sadly passed away. His body was transported to Guelph University for end-of-life services. He was honored by dozens of his fellow police officers, his casket draped in the Canadian flag, making for an emotionally charged moment.
Bingo, a two-year-old German Shepherd, joined the Police services in July 2022. Upon completing intense training, he graduated and began his duties in December 2022. One bystander, a lady, expressed, “Bingo is not just a dog, he is also a police officer too.” She added that Bingo had saved his partner’s life by taking a bullet.
Bingo exhibited qualities beyond human comprehension, such as dedication to his work, honesty, faithfulness, and sincerity. He became the first K9 officer to die in the line of duty. His memory will continue to live on in the hearts of all Torontonians.
The procession for Bingo left from the EVC on Yonge Street, en route to Guelph University for “end of life veterinary services”, today at 7:30 a.m. Thank you to @torontopolice members at @TPSK9, @TPSMounted, the ETF, & @TPSMotorSquad for escorting our hero home. #heroesinlife pic.twitter.com/uW7N1iZdfy— Toronto Police Association (@TPAca) July 27, 2023
