In February of last year, the Gilford Police Department announced with a heavy heart that they had to say goodbye to their K-9 Ike.

Ike would have been with the GPD for five years in May of 2017. He was loved and valued by the community and is dearly missed.

Josey Curley, who is a senior at Gilford High School, dropped by the Police Station today and brought a very touching gift. She painted this amazing portrait of K-9 Ike:

What a thoughtful gesture! It's clear the gift meant a lot to the Gilford Police Department. This is what the holiday season is all about.
