Wayne County Emergency Communications Dispatch has shared the final call for Richmond Police Department K-9 Officer Seara Burton.

After Monday’s service at Richmond High School concluded, Burton’s hearse paused in front of her vehicle parked on the lawn of Richmond Municipal Building for the moving end-of-tour dispatch.

The dispatch is called a 10-42 in the first responder community.

10-42 is the signal that officers use to tell dispatchers their work day has ended. Officers sign into their shifts with a 10-41 transmission.

Signal 100, which is said early in the 4-minute communication between dispatchers and the Indiana Fraternal Order of Police, means to hold all other scanner calls to emergencies only.
