Reprimand Police Officer for Allegedly Neglecting German Shepherd

Target: Robert Powers, Pittston Chief of Police

Goal: Reprimand officer for allegedly neglecting dog.

A police officer was reportedly cited for “wantonly or cruelly neglecting” a German shepherd. Officer Slade Profka reportedly neglected to feed the poor dog properly. According to court documents, the possible penalties that Profka faces are fines and up to 90 days of jail time.

There is no excuse for a police officer to cause unnecessary harm to a dog who is under his care. Please sign this petition to tell the police department that animal cruelty of any kind is inexcusable and demand that the officer be reprimanded accordingly.


Dear Mr. Powers,

A police officer was reportedly cited with “wantonly or cruelly neglecting” a German shepherd that was under his care. The officer neglected to feed the poor animal, according to reports.

There’s no excuse for neglecting animals and causing them unnecessary harm and it would be a complete injustice for this type of animal abuse to go unpunished. We urge you to see to it that the officer is reprimanded, if guilty.

    This is no officer! If he can’t take care of his German shepherd how can he be a good police officer?

  2. Margaret Melnick says:

    This man must be removed from the Police force and charged with the maximum penalty the law allows. Being a policeman does not exempt him from the laws others are required to follow. Anything less makes a joke of the law enforcement people.

  3. punish this bad cop now.must take care of the great dogs on the force.

  4. I thought you were required to ‘Serve and protect”. Sack this mongrel, stick him in a cell and forget to feed IT!!!!!!
