It is with heavy hearts that we announce the unexpected passing of Falco, the beloved certified police dog, at the age of seven. Falco was not just a dedicated and loyal partner to the force; he was a cherished member of the police family and a true hero in every sense of the word.
A memorial visitation will be held 5:00 until 6:00 P.M. on Tuesday, September 19, 2023, at Wright Funeral Home & Crematory Chapel. At the conclusion of the visitation, anyone who wishes to say special words over Falco may do so. This service is for everyone who wants to thank a true hero for putting his life on the line for our entire Wiregrass area.

Falco also assisted multiple other law enforcement agencies such as the Alabama Drug Enforcement Task Force, DEA, Headland Police Department, Barbour County Sheriff’s Office, Eufaula Police Department, and many others.
Falco was more than just a K9, he was full of life. He loved to work. Falco is responsible for taking an exceedingly number of drugs off the streets.
