The Porter County Sheriff's Department suffered a great loss when K-9 Quent was struck and killed by a car in front of his handler's residence. All who knew Quent are greatly saddened. None were as grief stricken as Officer Gary Gear and his fellow K-9 handlers
who have worked closely together as a team.  Officer Gear and Quent had worked  together as partners for over two years, 
and had been involved in a number of  drug arrests. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Gear.

In Memory Of Quent 
Don't grieve for me I served you well. 
I loved you more than you could ever tell. 

I am now your guardian angel in brown. 
I will watch over  you, I'll always be around. 

 I wore my badge with honor every day,
 to keep citizens safe and out of harm's way. 

So when you see a badge worn with pride,
 remember the canines that have served and died.
