The Plainfield Police Department released this news release:

It is with great sadness that the Plainfield Police Department regretfully announces the passing of K9 Aron.

On Sunday, September 21, 2014, K9 Aron and his handler/partner Officer Brian Wagner completed their last shift together. During the shift, K9 Aron became ill and subsequently passed away of natural causes.

Officer Wagner began K9 School on September 11, 2006, at the Landheim Law Enforcement K9 Training Center in Indiana, where he was selected to become K9 Aron’s handler.

After completing their training, they returned to Plainfield and began an illustrious career together. During their career, Officer Wagner and K9 Aron quickly developed a bond known only to a select few in the law enforcement community.

K9 Aron will be greatly missed and our condolences extend to Officer Wagner and his family during this difficult time.
