Ponca City Police Department Retired K9 Officer, Ben, died on Monday.  He was the four-legged partner of Lieutenant Kevin Jeffries as they worked side by side from May 25, 2005, to May 25, 2010.

Ben was graciously purchased and donated to the Police Department by longtime residents of Ponca City, Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Holland.  They wanted the Police Department to have a K9 and approached then Police Chief Clayton Johnson and Ben was soon purchased.

Just like the previous PCPD K9, Ben was a Belgian Malinois.  Ben received his drug detection training prior to meeting his handler and career partner, Lt. Jeffries.   After Ben’s retirement he lived happily with Jeffries and his family.
