The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is deeply saddened to announce that on November 10, 2018, San Jacinto Police K-9 “Wyatt” passed away due to medical complications.  Wyatt was rushed to a veterinarian hospital but died as a result of an inoperable brain tumor late last night.

Wyatt, a Belgium Malinois breed, was born in the Netherlands on July 2, 2012.  Wyatt was assigned to the San Jacinto Police Department under the police services contract with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. 

In November 2015, Wyatt was partnered with his handler, Sergeant Mark Wallace, and they both attended the K-9 training academy.  They successfully graduated in December 2015 and were immediately assigned to the City of San Jacinto Police Department.  Wyatt, a dedicated police K-9, specialized in apprehension, tracking and narcotics detection, and was successful in each of these areas during his career with the San Jacinto Police Department.   

The San Jacinto Police Department and Riverside County Sheriff’s Department are honored and touched by the outpouring of support from the community and our allied law enforcement partners.
