  • The police officers of the Port Authority Police Benevolent Association are saddened by the recent passing of #PAPD K9 Bojar, an eight-year-old German Shepherd who served with the PAPD for six and one-half years. Bojar was an explosives detection canine and the loyal partner of Police Officer Rodney Arroyo.
He began his police career with the Alaska State Police in Juneau before being transferred to the Port Authority Police Department in July, 2012. He  was born in April, 2008, in Europe.
Bojar was a friendly, loveable and playful family dog at home who brought joy to the Arroyo family. At work he was all business with an outstanding work ethic and a drive to protect the people of New York and New Jersey and the millions who use Port Authority facilities. He was a great partner, always aiming to please and never, ever quitting.
Bojar battled liver cancer for several months before losing his battle at 3:15 p.m., on December 1, 2018. His final hours were spent with his family doing what he loved most, playing fetch.
Police Officer Arroyo's new partner is a German Shepherd named Benni after a September 11, 2001 World Trade Center victim, Bryan Craig Bennett.
Thank you Bojar for being a cherished member of the PAPD. You will always be honored and never forgotten. #PAPDPROTECTSNYNJ #PAPDK9 #BOJAR
