    Rochester, NY Police K-9 "Hawk" sat inside hot SUV
    for over an hour.​

    A Rochester, NY Police officer, driving 'K9-3" cruiser, left his partner "Hawk" inside the hot Durango SUV for over an hour, on Monday, as he went to an appointment, inside an air conditioned doctor's office, behind the Calkins Corporate Park office complex, off Red Creek Drive in Henrietta, NY, arriving at approximately 1:25 p.m., and leaving around 2:45 p.m.

    Although the rear windows in the police SUV were down, leaving the cages to allow some air to flow in, the vehicle was parked directly under sunlight, with no shade whatsoever.

    As the videos below show, patients and staff walking by the RPD SUV were startled when "Hawk", a beautiful German Shepherd greeted them with loud barking.

    There are actually two disturbing stories here.

    First, this officer's behavior show yet another example of Rochester Police officers misusing taxpayer dollars, in this case, driving outside the RPD's jurisdiction, to another town, for personal reasons.

    Second, leaving an innocent dog in a hot vehicle, for over an hour, with no shade, albeit, windows down.

    A call to dispatch confirmed RPD K9-3 unit was "on duty", and the dispatcher said they had no knowledge the officer was out in Henrietta.

    Isn't it a criminal offense to leave an animal in a hot car (let alone a human?) It would have been interesting if a Good Samaritan had called 911 or smashed the cop's windows to save the dog.

    I think it is animal cruelty at a minimum. The cop should be disciplined. On top of that it sounds like he was out of his area without notifying dispatch or his superiors. Something more than just harming the dog is going on with this incident.
