K9 Jace began his law enforcement career with the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office before coming to the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office three years ago. He assisted with countless arrests and was instrumental in locating narcotics many times. K9 Jace was responsible for the seizure of thousands of dollars of narcotics-related funds.

“K9 Jace helped us build our K9 Division by being one of the first additional K9s that Sheriff Blaise Smith added to the SMPSO. K9 Jace has helped build community relations by doing demos at schools, churches, and for the general public. He will be missed.” -Cpt. Chris Veillion, K9 Division

The sheriff’s office thanked K9 Jace for his loyal service.

A memorial service is being planned to honor the life and faithful service of K9 Jace after the holidays. The details will be announced to the public.
