Should financial costs be ignored when dismissing a Police Dog?


I read that East Haven CT have dismissed their last K-9. The claim is he cost too much in financial terms, they had invested thousands of dollars in training and veterinary fees in the dogs five years service. Now he is just too expensive. But is this view short sighted, the cash cost is not balanced against risk for human officers chasing offenders, the need for dogs in search and rescue and the loss of a high value public relations team.
