As you remember these fallen officers, take comfort in recalling that they dedicated their lives to the same principles of honor, duty and courage that brought you to the badge. Such a life is truly rich. Take strength in knowing that when an officer falls, our resolve to serve those in need is not diminished. Our dedication to protecting those in danger is not weakened. Our commitment to remembering those with whom we shared the badge does not fade.
Godspeed, brothers and sisters. You fought the good fight. Now rest in peace…
The Moberly, Missouri Police Department regrets to announce the death of K-9 Cako, patrol partner of Corporal Shane Newbrough, on November 20, 2003. Cako passed away at 6:07 PM, Thursday evening from kidney failure. Cako was born on June 9, 1999, and purchased in October of 2001 by the Moberly Police Department through a Federal Grant. Cako began his service with the Moberly Police Department in December of 2001. During his tour of duty with the Police Department Cako was involved in many tracking and search operations not only for the Moberly Police Department, but also for other law enforcement agencies around the Randolph County area. Cako has assisted in the successful prosecution of many drug cases. Cako and Shane visited area schools to give talks and demonstrations of the K-9 officers and handlers job and abilities. Cako was a true "officer"; while able to complete dangerous and sometimes demanding tasks, he was gentle enough to bond with some of our youngest citizens allowing even 2 year olds to pet him. Private Services for Cako will be Tuesday, November 25, 2003. Cako will be sadly missed by Cpl Newbrough and the officers and staff of the Moberly Police Department.
