Canine “Joker” EOW: 02/02/1987

Today we take a moment to reflect on the passing of Penn Hills police Canine “Joker,” who proudly served the residents of our community until his death in the line of duty.  

Joker was three years old when he died.  Sadly, his police service was cut short, only working for one year with his handler, Officer Paul Schawalder. 

Joker will forever remain in our hearts as a faithful and loyal four-legged servant who loved coming to work every day to ride around and fight crime with his partner.
