"In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: The police, who investigate crime, and the K9s who assist them. These are their stories."


Okay so that's not exactly the opening dialogue for Law and Order, but it's close. Let us explain.

The Village of Monroe shared great news about one of their local K9s and their handler. It looks like these Hudson Valley heroes are getting the star treatment. According to a social media post, K9 Keen and Officer Berke are making their television debut. They write:

Our own Ofc. Berke and K- 9 Keen of the Village of Monroe P.D. will make their acting debut Thursday on Law and Order 10 pm on channel 4.

According to NBC's line-up, Law and Order Organized Crime airs at 10 PM on Thursdays. Looks like Officer Berke and K9 Keen will be gracing the screen with the likes of Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay and maybe an Elliot Stabler(Christopher Maloney) scene? We're patiently waiting to see the two Hudson Valley scene-stealers on NBC's Law and Order SVU.

The Hudson Valley is no stranger to the Law and Order world. There have been several episodes where the team has traveled "upstate" to investigate further into a suspect or criminal.

Then of course there was that one time when Elliot Stabler himself (Christopher Maloney) was spotted walking around Newburgh in 2020.
