The Winnipeg Police Service's K-9 squad is paying tribute to one of their most beloved members in an upcoming 2016 calendar.

Judge, a star K-9 unit member that helped investigators in more than 500 arrests, died in January, shortly after the dog's retirement.

Calendars with pictures of Judge and 11 other service dogs and 12 handlers were sent to a printer this week. The photograph for December will be of the majority of those dogs together with Air-1, the service's helicopter, police said.

The calendars are available for purchase at Winnipeg's public safety building and Petland stores across the city. (Lyzaville Sale/CBC)

The calendars will be available for $15 and funds raised will go to the Winnipeg Police Endowment Fund, which helps under-served and at-risk families and children.

They are available for purchase at Winnipeg's Public Safety Building and Petland stores across the city.

"We've put out the calendar to showcase our dogs and our unit to help raise funds and put back into the community," said an email from Const. Dave Weisz, one of the K-9 unit handlers.
