Judge served with the West Deptford Police Department from 2007 to 2014. Alongside Cpl. Franks, he took guns off the street, apprehended 152 suspects and found”countless” amounts of drugs.
“He was a true asset to our community and will be forever missed.”
Last year, Judge was diagnosed with Cushings disease and required surgery costing more than $10,000. A GoFundMe campaign was organized and within approximately one day they could afford the surgery.
Eventually the disease took its toll and Judge had to be put down. Cpl. Michael Franks told ABC News Today,
“Though Judge was extremely lethargic and could barely walk the days before the ceremony, he was able to bite onto his favorite protective decoy arm sleeve used in training and carry it into the hospital.”
