A public memorial will be held Thursday for Schultz, the Gloucester Township, N.J., police dog that was killed Nov. 30 when he was flung into traffic by a robbery suspect.

The memorial is set for 2 p.m. at Gloucester Township Community Park at 400 Hickstown Rd. and will feature the unveiling of a K-9 memoiral sign, a bag pipe band, honor guards, a rifle salute, and possibly a helicopter flyover.

A procession of all township police vehicles will begin about 1:40 p.m. at the Chews Landing Veterinary Hospital at 1179 Chews Landing Rd. in Laurel Springs and will escort Schultz's cremated remains to the park.

Skyler Robinson, 20, was charged with harming a law enforcement dog, robbery and resisting arrest. A second man also was charged in the robbery.
