One of the first four-legged officers with the Douglas County sheriff's office has died.
K-9 "Kilo," who retired from active duty in December, died last week at the home of his partner, sheriff's Sgt. Joe Duffy. He was 11 years old
The long-haired German Shepherd joined the sheriff's department
in April 1999.
During his eight years on patrol and as a member of the SWAT
team, authorities say Kilo participated in more than 500 calls and
made numerous arrests, including about 20 felony suspects.
He also was cross-trained in drug detection.
Among his most notable accomplishments was tracking a suspected
bank robber through a residential neighborhood. Kilo found the suspect hiding in a dog house.
