Salt Lake Co. K-9 passes away from medical complications
SALT LAKE CITY — Boomer, a K-9 with the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office, has died, according to the department.
“Boomer was undergoing treatment for intestinal problems when he passed away,” the press release stated.
The Sheriff’s Office welcomed Boomer to the team in Jan. 2018.
He worked with his parter, Deputy M. Hintze, to prevent illicit narcotics from entering into the jails.
“His job was challenging and his work required him to be constantly on the move searching buildings, persons, and vehicles,” the press release stated.
Officials said Boomer and Hintze also spent time with the Unified Police Department’s K-9 unit, along with the DEA, SLCPD, Peace Officer Standards and Training, and Adult Probation and Parole.
“As an office, our hearts are heavy with the loss of this K-9. Boomer was more than a partner to Deputy Hintze; he was a member of his family. We are all keeping Deputy Hintze and his family in our thoughts and prayers,” Sheriff Rosie Rivera said in a statement.
