If you would like to thank them for their involvement in this, the following are their addresses:
District Attorney General
Shelby County District Attorney’s Office
Sheriff Mark H. Luttrell, Jr.
Also, below is the City of Memphis Mayor A.C. Wharton’s address:
Preliminary investigation reveals when the officers arrived on the scene, they attempted to check the residence for signs of a break-in. While entering the back yard, the officers noticed a dog door. While attempting to back out of the yard, they were charged by two dogs. The officers advised they had no choice but to defend themselves and each shot one time at the dogs.
Inspectional Service Bureau made the scene to conduct a full investigation. It is policy for all shootings to be investigated by ISB. This incident will be handled like any other investigation.
Memphis ARE trained on how to be vigilant of their surroundings. They are taught how to look for signs of a dog’s presence, but still have a duty to do their job.
Due to the large volume of burglary alarms, citizens who are owners of pets can assist officers in the following ways;
· Post “” or “Dog on Premises” signs near the gates on your fence.
· Advise your alarm company provider that you have an animal on the premises and make sure the alarm company relays that information to officers.
· Secure a lock on each gate
In regards to the incident that occurred today, this investigation is ongoing. An update will be available upon the conclusion of the investigation.

Just wanted to make everyone aware, even those of you that read my blog from Texas to New York to California, etc. There is a lot going on in Memphis today concerning animals and children. I am a member of the Animal Cruelty Taskforce as well as a on member on the Board of the Mid South Spay Neuter Services and really try my best to make everyone aware of what is going on in the community. I think when we are aware we make more conscious decisions. I have so much unpacking going on, but wanted to post this so if anyone wants to write letters etc..
