The city of Dunbar remembered a former officer Wednesday.
A small memorial service honored the city's K-9 Lt. Alley in front of Dunbar City Hall at the police and fire memorials.
Alley was on the force for 10 years with her handler Lt. Scott Elliot and died on the job in August.
Alley was proficient in seeking out drugs, tracking suspects, and protection.
On one of her busts, she actually sniffed out 90 pounds of drugs.
Her handler said she will be missed.
She was my partner,” Elliott said. “She was my friend. She protected me to the end. I had many situations where, if I felt the little nerves on the back of my neck going, I could count on her to be there through thick and thin. She was always there."
Alley had been on the force since 2003.
