York Regional Police are sad to announce the death of Police Service Dog (PSD) Ranger. PSD Ranger passed away peacefully with his handler, Constable Mike McGuigan, by his side late yesterday afternoon.
PSD Ranger was involved in 41 apprehensions and more 120 criminal charges were laid as a result of his actions. In 2009, Ranger and his handler Constable McGuigan placed second overall in the annual Police Iron Dog Competition for provincial canine teams. He also received seven recognitions for his work on incidents ranging from Amber Alerts to home invasions.
We are grateful for his service and his contributions to our community are deeply appreciated. Ranger will be missed.
