Carson City Sheriff’s Office K-9 Tico has retired.
Tico turned 10 years old in September, and will now get to spend his golden years relaxing at home with his handler, Deputy Jimmy Surratt.
Tico’s service to this community began in April 2016. He officially retired Thursday.
Over his nearly six-year career, Tico amassed a whopping 736 K-9 sniffs and patrol deployments. He worked on patrol, visited schools to keep the children in the community safe, and topped off his contributions in the Special Enforcement Team.
Surratt should also be commended, as he topped off an extensive K-9 career with Tico as his third dog.
Surratt remains with the sheriff’s office in the patrol division.
With Tico’s retirement, the Carson City Canine Unit welcomes K-9 Cash.
Deputy Tripp and Cash.Cash is an 18-month-old Belgian Malinois, and he successfully completed K-9 school this week. His handler, Deputy Jon Tripp, also has previous K-9 experience, and the two of them will be patrolling your neighborhoods before the start of this new year.
