K9 Memorial

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Accelerant Detection K-9 Hunter. Hunter was assigned to central Fire Investigator Captain Stephen Letts. K-9 Hunter was 12 years old and faithfully served the citizens of New Jersey from 2004 to 2015. K-9 Hunter was still active and working until his passing. The members of the NJ state Fire Marshal’s Arson K-9 Unit will miss him greatly. RIP K-9 Hunter, will take it from here.
