Jett and Police Officer Thomas Lazure
On July 31, 2014, West Hartford, Connecticut Police Department K-9 Jett and his handler, Police Officer Thomas Lazure responded to the scene of an attempted carjacking where a suspect had fired several shots at an individual. While enroute to the scene, the car jack suspect fired a weapon at a Hartford, CT Police Officer and the gun malfunctioned. K-9 Jett was deployed with the Hartford SWAT team to track the subject. K-9 Jett established an air scent and located the subject in an unlit residential backyard. Knowing the suspect had already fired his weapon at a Hartford Police Officer, Police Officer Tom Lazure had seconds to decide if he should release K-9 Jett to apprehend the suspect. The suspect was combative with K-9 Jett but was ultimately taken into custody.
