Orange County Sheriff Carl E. DuBois Announces the Passing of K-9 Tok
Goshen, NY – It is with deep sadness that Sheriff Carl DuBois announces the passing of K-9 Tok. Tok was the loyal partner of Deputy Sheriff and SOG Operator Daniel Volpe, who served Orange County for six years.
Tok was born in Slovakia on February 10, 2012 and was assigned to Deputy Sheriff and SOG Operator Daniel Volpe. Tok was trained and put into service as a Patrol K-9 with a specialty in Narcotics Detection. Tok answered the call for service numerous times throughout his career. Of those calls the most notable was locating a person who overdosed in the woods, and locating a suicidal person holding a knife, saving both their lives in the process.
Tok competed in the United States Police Canine Association Region 7, Police Dog Trial in 2018, placing Fifth Overall, Second Place in Obedience, and Third Place in Criminal Apprehension.
Tok was the first Sheriff’s Office K-9 to be assigned to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Group. Tok proved to be a valuable asset in the performance of the team’s countless operations.
Tok suffered from an aggressive form of cancer and experienced a rapid decline in his health. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office would like to extend our deepest condolences to Deputy Sheriff and SOG Operator Daniel Volpe and his family on the loss of their partner, friend, and family member.
Sheriff Carl DuBois stated, “My heart goes out to the Volpe family during this sad time. K-9 Tok will be missed by everyone at the Sheriff’s Office. Thank you Tok for your dedicated service to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and the citizens of the County of Orange and the State of New York. Rest easy good boy.”
