It's not often we have to share bad news with our residents, but unfortunately we have lost a valued member of our team.
K9 Bak was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer after a sudden and unexpected illness. He quickly became too sick to continue his duties, and passed away on December 19, 2017.
K9 Bak joined SHPD on April 12, 2012 and was immediately paired with Officer Dave Emlaw. Since that time, K9 Bak not only excelled as an employee and partner, but also as a valued and loved member of the Emlaw family. His drive and dedication for service included specialized work in narcotics and patrol activity, including apprehension of suspects and the recovery of discarded articles. This crime fighting duo not only served our residents, but also conducted successful work on behalf of the EDGE SWAT team, and other communities who requested our assistance. Perhaps some of their most overlooked, but greatly appreciated efforts, was the team's promotion of this community.
Bak will always be remembered as a faithful and loving companion of the Emlaw family, and a dedicated and loyal partner with the Shaker Heights Police Department. Bak’s dedicated service and spirited contribution to our role as public servants will be greatly missed.
Notre Dame College Police Department (Ohio) Chief Jeffrey Scott was working special duty detail Friday, December 8 at the Beachwood Mall located in the Cleveland, Ohio area when a toddler saw him standing there and without any hesitation or fear--she ran right over to him and wanted him to pick her up. He complied and as soon as he picked her up, she nestled right on his shoulder and immediately fell asleep.
The child's family could not believe what they witnessed, and were shocked how she just latched on to the Chief. They wanted to get a picture as this has never happened before. The family let her stay in the Chief's arms for about ten minutes before they had to leave and head home.
