FROM CITY OF ST. CLAIR SHORES MAYOR KIP WALBY:
As Mayor of Saint Clair Shores, I am deeply saddened by the tragedy that occurred here last night. We lost K9 Officer Axe, a dedicated member of The SCSPD. This is a blow to our department, particularly Axe’s partner, to whom Axe was not just a partner, but also family. Aside from being a police officer, Axe was an Ambassador to our community, and was beloved by all he came in contact with.
SCSPD is one of the finest Police Departments around, and I am proud of the work they do every day to protect and serve our residents. Because of the stellar work SCSPD does, Saint Clair Shores is, and will continue to be, a great, safe city to live in. If you are a person of faith, I am asking you to keep our city and police department in your prayers. Matthew 5:4 says Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
