The plaque commemorates Police Dog Carts who died in the line of duty in 2007. 

Carts the Police Dog was named after Constable David Carty, who lost his life when attacked in a Sydney hotel car park in 1997, Carts died when stabbed by a teenager in Corrimal in 2007. Carts` handler Senior Constable Brett Williams had challenged the youth, who ran into bushland. When the youth ignored calls to stop, Carts was released. Carts caught up with the offender after a short pursuit and bit him on the leg, as taught in bite and detain training. It was then that the Balgownie teenager pulled a 6cm-bladed pocketknife from his pocket and stabbed the police dog. He was the fourth dog to die while on duty since New South Wales Police Dog Unit was formed in 1932.
