See below information related to an Earth Day event scheduled at Jordan Park on Saturday, April 21st.....

APD wishes to recongnize the decorated career of K9 Fedor who retired from active service today. APD thanks K9 Fedor for his service to the City of Allentown. We thank his handler, Officer Howells, for sharing his devoted K9 with us for so many years. The following was the radio call put out earlier today....... Today, K9 Fedor leaves this city one last time as an active Allentown Police K9. Today when he reaches his home, he will be officially retired. K9 Fedor joined the Allentown Police Department on August 12, 2011. On that day, he was united with his handler, Officer Chip Howells, his family, and the family of the brothers and sisters of the Allentown Police Department. K9 Fedor passed his first certification on December 16th, 2011, certifying in Patrol and Narcotics, and began working the streets of Allentown. During his career he was attached to the Powershift, 2nd Platoon, SED Unit, and the 1st Platoon. K9 Fedor worked every day with braveness and excitement, being responsible for numerous drug seizures, the apprehension of multiple suspects, and conducting hundreds of Public Demonstrations for the Citizens of Allentown. K9 Fedor always knew that keeping his brothers and sisters safe from harm, especially Ofc. Howells, staying by his side, keeping him safe and ensuring they went home to their family at the end of the day was of the utmost importance. There wasn’t a time you wouldn’t hear K9 Fedor on the air, or as someone walked by, barking, spinning around, shaking the Patrol Car, ensuring everyone knew that K9 Fedor was there. They say the bond between a K9 and his handler is like nothing else and that was always evident between Ofc. Howells and K9 Fedor. Through the years the two formed that special bond that will always be cherished and remembered as K9 Fedor and Ofc. Howells move on to the next chapter of their careers. K9 Fedor, thank you for your six and a half years of dedicated service, thank you from your brothers and sisters, from the city employees, but also from the citizens of the City of Allentown, that you always served and protected. We wish you a long, happy, and healthy retirement….you’ve earned it! #AllentownPolice
