This page is dedicated in the memory of K9 Kitt and K9 Lucky.  

K9 Kitt (823K) was the longtime partner of K9 Officer Cushing and killed in the line of duty on June 4th, 2021.  During his career with the Braintree Police, K9 Kitt was instrumental in the apprehension of violent criminals and discarded evidentiary items from crimes.  Not only was he one of the most successful apprehension K9's in Massachusetts, but was also an ambassador to this department, participating in community events and K9 demonstrations.  K9 Kitt will forever be remembered by this department and is sorely missed.  On June 4th 2021, K9 Kitt and his handler were ambushed by a violent armed criminal.  K9 Kitt gave his life protecting his handler and fellow officers as the gunman opened fire on the 3 man team from a concealed position.  

K9 Lucky was a single purpose narcotics K9 assigned to K9 Officer Seibert and passed away on April 18th, 2022.  He was not only one of the most prolific narcotics dogs in the Commonwealth, he was always a great ambassador for the Braintree Police Department.  Lucky and K9 Officer Seibert worked the streets of Braintree and beyond for a remarkable twelve-year career in which this team was responsible for the seizure of millions of dollars’ worth of illegal narcotics; poison taken off of our streets for good. Also seized were many millions of dollars of currency and real property derived from, or used to facilitate, the illegal manufacturing, packaging, and/or sale of narcotics. Lucky’s indication to the presence of narcotic odor helped seize narcotic packaging equipment and materials, cars, motorcycles, firearms, and real estate. Officer Seibert and K9 Lucky’s work led to the issuance of hundreds of local, state, and federal search warrants leading to hundreds of arrests and convictions.
