* DEATH OF TITUS: The Little Rock police reported today the death of a K-9 in the line of duty.

On July 15, 2015, a Little Rock Police Department K9 Officer lost his life in the line of duty. K9 Officer Titus was involved in a lengthy foot chase with a suspect who had stolen property from a vehicle he had broken into. Upon locating the suspect, officers attempted to place him under arrest; however, he resisted. Titus was released and apprehended the suspect, who was taken into custody.

Following the incident, Titus began to exhibit signs of heat-related distress. Titus was rushed to the Briarwood Animal Hospital where he failed to respond to treatment.

K9 Officer Titus was a critical member of LRPD for three years, and was assigned to the Downtown Division’s 1500-2300 watch. His efforts led to countless arrests. Titus was loved by the community and his fellow officers, and will be deeply missed.

K9 Officer Titus’s End of Watch was 07/15/2015.
