The Pottstown Police Department is mourning the death of another K9 officer, K9 Taz.
K9 Taz has been with the Pottstown Police Department since May 2012 and was a dedicated and loyal partner to Corporal Jeff Portock.
K9 Taz faithfully served with Cpl. Portock, patrolling and protecting the Borough of Pottstown for over 8 years before retiring at the end of 2020.
K9 Taz was trained and certified in explosive detection and patrol tactics. Taz was also a former member of the Montgomery County SWAT-West team.
Taz passed away last week with Cpl. Portock and his family by his side.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Cpl. Portock and his family.
