The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is remembering K-9 Ivo, who recently died, according to a Wednesday news release.

“K-9 Ivo was a primary member of our K-9 unit and has been with us since 2014,” according to CCSO. “He was first assigned to Sgt. Brian Humphrey, where he began his career as a Special Enforcement Team member. Sgt. Humphrey was promoted shortly thereafter, and Ivo was paired with his forever partner, Detective Brett Bindley. The two would become inseparable.

“A master of all trades, K-9 Ivo was certified in the detection of narcotics, tracking, and suspect apprehension. Together, Detective Bindley and K-9 Ivo would dedicate six years fulfilling needs in Patrol, Special Enforcement, and SWAT… During his tenure, Ivo accounted for more than 1,000 field deployments, resulting in a multitude of arrests and the seizure of drugs that would otherwise have been free to wreak havoc in our community.”

CCSO said Ivo retired in 2020 and got to spend time with his “human” family.

“In life, Ivo embodied everything the sheriff’s office and its K-9 unit should be,” the release said. “He was a hardworking public servant, an ambassador to the Carson City community, and a loving companion at home. We’re grateful to have enjoyed him for as long as we have, and we thank you for sharing in his memory.”
