K9 Hudson was shot and killed in Geneva during the apprehension of a robbery suspect.

A Kane County deputy sheriff located a stolen vehicle after being alerted by an LPR hit. Deputies attempted to stop the car at the intersection of Randall Road and Silver Glen Road in South Elgin, but the driver fled, and a pursuit was initiated. The driver exited the vehicle holding a handgun at the intersection of Randall Road and Fabyan Parkway, in Geneva. K9 Hudson was deployed for an apprehension and bit the subject, who then opened fire.

K9 Hudson and the subject were both killed during the exchange of gunfire.

K9 Hudson had served with the Kane County Sheriff's Office for six years.

The First & The Last

The first to sense the hostility of a suspect,
The first to react to protect his master,
The first to enter where danger lurks,
The first to detect the hidden intruder.
The first to take action against violence.
The first to sense his master’s joy.
The first to know his master’s sorrow or fear.
The first to give his life in defense of his master.
The last to be forgotten by those who work with others like him.
They know him as a “Partner”, not just an animal.
