BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The Idaho Officers Memorial Board is considering adding a tribute to police dogs at the memorial’s Meridian site.

The Idaho Statesman reports (https://bit.ly/2g5yP7G ) that memorial board members and K9 memorial committee members met last week to discuss where they could display a bronze canine bust and the names of slain police dogs.

Board President Mike Johnson says the committee must now raise funds and come up with a specific proposal to present to the board for approval.

The decision comes in the wake of the line-of-duty death of Boise police dog Jardo on Nov. 16.

Johnson says people associated with the peace officer’s memorial have been deluged with questions about adding a police dog memorial since Jardo’s death.
