P1 First Person: "Our last goodbye"

Editor's Note: PoliceOne recently launched a new series, “First Person," where P1 columnists and members candidly share their own unique cop’s-eye-view of the world, from personal nsights on issues confronting cops today to observations and advice on living life behind the thin blue line. This week’s feature is from Foster City (Calif.) K-9 officer Mike McLaughlin, who recently allowed PoliceOne to attend a K-9 training session. Mike's poem below is dedicated to the memory of Kim von der Brandenburg, a Foster City Police Service Dog (January 1995 – June 2005). Do you want to share your own "First Person" perspective with other P1 Members? We're on the lookout for well-written opinion from our members, so E-mail us your short article.
