Buffalo Police Officer Craig E. Lehner's body was found Tuesday afternoon in the Niagara River, five days after he went missing during a training exercise for the department's Underwater Recovery Team.
At 4:48 p.m. Tuesday, Buffalo Police broadcast an "end of watch" call, a tradition for a fallen police officer.
"Radio to K-9 43," a Buffalo police dispatcher said, referring to Lehner's radio call sign with his canine partner, Shield.
After eight seconds of silence, the dispatcher continued, "K-9 43, we thank you for your service. May you rest in peace."
