We are saddened to announce the passing of retired Charlestown Police Department K9, Kubo; end of watch 11/20/2023. K9 Kubo served the Charlestown community from March 2012 through retirement in November 2017; as the dedicated and faithful duty partner of beloved CHPD Sgt. Ben Bertram (EOW 12/12/2018). Following Sgt. Bertram’s line of duty death K9 Kubo went to live with Ben’s parents, Luke & Diane Bertram, where he was spoiled & adored.
K9 Kubo was certified in both narcotics and utility patrol work; responsible for countless narcotic seizures, apprehensions, and service. K9 Kubo, a Belgian Malinois / Dutch Shepherd mix breed; was 12 years of age when departing us. Kubo was an amazing Police K-9 and will be eternally missed.
Our hearts are heavy and our thoughts are with the Bertram family. We take comfort in the memories of Sgt. Bertram & K9 Kubo’s time here with us and we find joy in knowing they are once again reunited.
Rest in Peace K9 Kubo
