The memorial sculpture honors of the dedication of all police service dogs nationwide. "Jax" served the residents of Castle Rock from 2002-2008 with over 1,900 deployments for missing persons, illegal drugs and defending fellow officers. "Jax" was favorite among Castle Rock school children, often visiting schools. After his passing in 2010, Castle Rock Police Department officers began fund raising to memorialize all service dogs.
The Committee states: "The design teams found the "Jax" statue represents small town character through recognition of a well-known and highly visible, and well, best stated, "Character" in our community. The bronze sculpture sits prominently in front of the Castle Rock Police Headquarters on Perry Street and creates interest to residents and visitors alike."
