About my Call Sign & QSL Card...

K-9 Sylvester (Sly)

I have been a police officer for 23 years. 10 of those years I spent with the best partner...

Sylvester's story starts in the soviet republic of Georgia (former USSR) in 1991. After being washed out of the military he was sold to a US vendor for police service and shipped to the USA. My Department purchased him in 1992 for $2,500.

Sly and I completed Police K-9 Training in April 1993. We worked midnight patrol for seven months and were the first K-9 Team, in my department, selected to be crossed-trained for criminal apprehension and narcotics detection.

During our 10 years on the street we were responsible for more than 300 criminal apprehensions (some resulted in bites!) Over 1500 narcotics searches and countless misdemeanor arrests. Resulting in the seizure of hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, property and drugs.

Sylvester was retired from police service in April 2002 as I continue a career as a detective in Computer Forensics.

Sylvester passed in January of 2003.

This call sign is my way of keeping a part of him with me and remembering his service to our community...
