Hillsboro Police Says Goodbye to K-9 Jett
Jett joined the Hillsboro Police Department in 2012.
Hillsboro Police K-9 Jett and his partner, Officer Chaz Holmes, were dual certified in patrol tracking and drug detection, amassing more than 2,300 hours of training. They educated the public in countless presentations and were deployed 500 times.
The bond between a police K-9 and their handler is extraordinary. We know Officer Holmes and his family are deeply saddened, and we hold them close in our hearts as they mourn Jett's passing.
Thank you for your service to our agency and the residents of Hillsboro, Jett. We will miss you, and always remember.
