Harker Heights police held a memorial Thursday for a K9 officer that died last year.

K9 Rokky died on Oct. 2, 2017. Harker Heights police said that Rocky had joined the Harker Heights Police Department in April 2009, medically retiring in 2016. Rokky died surrounded by his partner Officer Gabrielle Guerra and family. 

During his career, Rokky found a missing child on his first active tracking call and also located an armed subject right after. He had also assisted the Harker Heights SWAT team, the Bell County Organized Crime Task Force, among others. 

Rokky's memorial can be viewed outside of the Harker Heights Police Department.
