The Virginia Law Enforcement K-9 Memorial was dedicated in ceremonies outside of the veterinary college on October 16, 2009. Virginia Attorney General Bill Mims provided the keynote address.
The memorial consists of a life-size bronze German Shepherd law enforcement dog sculpted by Blacksburg artist Larry Bechtel. It is installed upon a granite base that will denote the names of Virginia law enforcement dogs that have lost their lives in the line of duty.
