The Bannockburn Police Department lost a beloved member this morning when our K-9 Dex suffered a ruptured spleen and passed away. Dex has been a valuable part of the law enforcement community not only in Bannockburn but also in Lake County. Dex was partnered with handler Officer Dave Lemmer in Sept. 2010 and was approx. 8 years old, born in Germany. The canine was instrumental in may arrests including numerous drug interdictions and he also played a vital role in public relations and school educational programs. Chief Ronald Price simply said he was 'a great dog' and will be tremendously missed by the department.
