Tribute for Case

PSD Case

RCMP Police Service Dog

Regimental #892

2010 – 2023

Years of Service: 2012 – 2017

Postings: Fort McMurray, Alberta

We were saddened to learn of the passing of PSD Case, #892, having occurred on January 26, 2023.

Case was born on Jan. 23, 2010 at the Police Dog Services Training Centre in Innisfail, Alta. After training, he was posted to Fort McMurray and paired with Cpl. Don Graves.

Case was a tracking extraordinaire and no amount of snow or wilderness was ever able to deter him. He once tracked subjects for four hours through contaminated conditions to a large river that he immediately knew the subjects had crossed. Just as he thought, the subjects were hiding on the other side and were quickly arrested thanks to Case’s strong nose!

Case sometimes worked with the RCMP’s Emergency Response Team. One time a prolific gang member attempted to flee from the back of a property but Case wouldn’t have it. He chased him down and held him by the leg until his handler came and took the gang member into custody.

In retirement, Case lived in Courtenay, B.C. and he kept the same close eye that he used to track suspects on his Kong, which he rarely let out of his sight. Unfortunately, Case had to contend with a reoccurring back injury and joint discomfort due to his many years of hard work.

Reflection of Case’s Family

Case never missed an opportunity to jump into anything wet: ocean, lake, river, stream, or even mud puddle! You could never get him inside if there was any snow to play in. He made it his job to look after the family and made it known he wanted all the family members together at all times. He was the protector of the house and the family, and we miss him every day.
