Handler: Officer Henry Minor 
Manchester Police Department 

239 East Middle Turnpike, - Manchester, CT 06040

With deepest Sympathy, I have to report that K-9 Veko passed away on 02/24/03. The decision was made to put him to sleep due to severe medical problems which prevented him from walking.  Veko was 11 plus years old, and served the Manchester Police Department for over six years.  Officer Henry Minor and "Veko"  were the Award Recipients in 2001  of the the highest award given to a Connecticut K-9 team. This was the result of a particular violent encounter with an offender. Both Officer Minor and "Veko" demonstrated unbelievable persistence, courage and bravery.  He will be sadly missed by his partner and the citizens of Manchester who he faithfully served.  A memorial service will be planned at a future date.
