MILFORD, Del. - The Milford Police Department is mourning the loss of a beloved K-9 that the department says tallied 93 apprehensions during his career. 

After a brief illness, Henk died Tuesday night at Savannah Animal Hospital in Lewes.  

According to the department, Cpl. Timothy Webb and Henk began their assignment in the K-9 Unit in May of 2012. 

Following training with the Wilmington Police Department in October of 2012, Henk began serving Milford and surrounding areas and the duo was routinely asked to assist other agencies with a variety of investigations. 

Police say Henk was also well known to area school children who they say he enjoyed entertaining by showing off his talents during numerous demonstrations. 

In a statement, the department said Henk took pride in making Milford a safer place and thanked him for his exemplary service. 

Henk, a German Shepherd, would have turned 7 on Nov. 5.
