Washington Co. K-9 Officer Retiring
WASHINGTON, Iowa (AP) -- A K-9 officer in southeast Iowa is leaving the force.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office says K-9 officer Joe is retiring from duty at the end of January. He began his career in August 2007 under the guidance of Deputy Jason Schlabaugh.
Joe has participated in day-to-day operations that include routine patrol, drug investigations and search and rescue. He has also been used for outreach and education programs.
The department plans to raise money to train a new K-9.
