Charleston police K9 Winslow dead at 8

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) – The Charleston Police Department lost a member of its team on Feb. 28. Retired K9 Winslow died at the age of 8.

Winslow was the partner of Sgt. Brian Salkeld and served with the department for more than six years. He retired on Jan. 1, 2013.

"He was a loveable black Lab and an ATF explosives detection K9," said Sgt. Salkeld. "He was a tremendous asset to our community and to my family. We will really miss him."

For years, Winslow was the only ATF K9 in the state and one of about 500 ATF K9s in the world, Salkeld said.

"He provided protective services for many important people who visited Charleston including presidents, vice-presidents, members of presidents' families, federal judges and of course so many of those overnight call outs for evidence recovery," said Sgt. Salkeld. "He was an amazing dog and most importantly he was a loveable goof ball."

Winslow would have turned 9 years old on Sunday, March 16.
