Police dog URL died on December 30th at just seven years old. But URL was a real hero. Thanks to him, more than 200 sex offenders have been convicted, the Weber County Sheriff’s Office said.

Detective Cameron Hartman, URL’s two-legged partner, who also lived with the dog, shared his story on the police station’s Facebook page. URL wasn’t bred to be a tracker, quite the opposite. He had a troubled start in life, living in several animal shelters as a puppy.

After Cameron gave him a home, he was trained as an “Electronic Storage Detection Canine” (ESDK9), making him the fourth dog in the US specifically specialized in searching for electronic storage media.

In more than 2,000 searches, the four-legged friend demonstrated his particular talent for snooping, with which he was able to track down digital pieces of evidence, particularly child pornography. National and international news services reported on the workings of the “Porn Sniffing Dog”, such as “CNN” in 2016.

URL’s success rate was impressive and ranged from micro SD cards in baby jars to camouflaged USB sticks to cell phone parts hidden in walls or toilets.

URL’s handler, Cameron, complemented the Facebook post with a touching suicide note to URL, in which he wrote, “It has been a great privilege to investigate by your side.”

It continued: “My heart is broken and full of memories and emotions. I’m so lucky to have met you… So many incredible experiences and opportunities you’ve brought me when I was just the guy on the boring end of the line.” He misses him a lot as URL has been a part of his family .

The ZDF “Morgenmagazin” has been her domain for years: Dunja Hayali will also appear in “heute journal” in February.

So far, Prince Harry in particular has publicly dished out against his father, King Charles, and the British royal family. Now the monarch could turn the tables. He is said to be planning his own interview with the BBC, in which his youngest son is also said to be a topic.
