Police brothers breed K-9 alliance
VILLA PARK – Brothers look out for each other, and Bryan and Tony Hruby are no exception. Bryan has four years on his younger brother, Tony, so he did things first. He became a police officer first and he got a dog first.
A few years later, Tony also became a police officer, and he brought home a pup this past spring.
Bryan, 36, may have done things first, but Tony's reaped the benefits of having a big brother to show him the ropes. So when Tony, 32, found himself holding the leash of an 18-month-old German shepherd last May after being assigned to the K-9 officer position at the Darien Police Department, Bryan was there to help because he'd already been in the same position for six years with the Villa Park Police Department.
It isn't uncommon for multiple children in a family to pursue careers in police work, but Bryan and Tony estimate that they're the only pair of brothers and K-9 officers in the state.
