Case Number: N/A
After eight years of dedicated and faithful service to the citizens of Douglas County, the Sheriff's Office would like to announce the retirement of their narcotics detection K-9, Kilo.
Kilo began serving this community in March 2005 with his handler, Sgt. Tim Huckins. This K-9 team exemplified the Sheriff's Office mission statement of providing for the peace and security of the citizens and visitors to our county.
Kilo has been an asset to the citizens of Douglas County. During his career, Kilo detected narcotics, located contraband in the jail facility, helped find missing people and tracked suspects. Sgt. Huckins and Kilo also participated in many community policing activities around the county. Kilo loved to visit school children and the community may recall even meeting Kilo at a the fair, a family safety event or at a presentation for a community group.
Kilo will enjoy his retirement with the Huckins family.
