  • It has been a difficult month for the #PAPD with the line of duty deaths of Police Officer Billy Leahy, EOW 6/6/19, and Lieutenant Bobby Jones, EOW 6/15/19. The PAPD also lost two K9s; Seamus, EOW 6/19/19, (Photo 1) a 14-year-old Belgian Malinois who served the PAPD for ten years with his partner, Police Officer Mary Anne Kelly and Dusty, EOW 6/8/19, (Photo 2) a 12-year-old German Shepherd who served the PAPD for nine years with his partner, Police Officer Angel Alejandro. Seamus and Dusty, both explosives detection K9s, were responsible for keeping the people of New York, New Jersey and the hundreds of millions who use Port Authority facilities annually safe and secure daily. They will be missed dearly but, their brothers and sisters of the PAPD K9 Unit will carry on in memory of Seamus and Dusty. #PAPDPROTECTSNYNJ #PAPDK9 #K9SEAMUS #K9DUSTY #PAPBA
