Police Service Mourns Death of Canine Ares

January 8, 2016   ·   0 Comments

10-year-old German Shepherd, Canine Ares, has been a member of the Orangeville Police Services since June 2006. Recently, Ares has passed away due to a medical condition and the Orangeville Police Service is mourning.

“We are saddened by the loss of Ares, a valuable member of our Police Service”, said Chief Wayne Kalinski.

Ares and Constable Dellelce were the team that was seen as a “force multiplier”. The partners assisted in investigations including missing persons, illicit drugs, the recovery of stolen property and building and land searches.

Ares and Constable Dellelce received multiple trainings such as training through Peel Regional Police Service, the United States Police Canine Association and the National Association of Professional Canine Handlers in Alpena, Michigan.

A plaque honoring Ares was unveiled in the lobby of the Orangeville Police Service today after a brief ceremony. The OPS board has approved the purchase of another canine and it is anticipated that the Canine Team will be in service by mid-summer.
