K-9 "Katy" (German Shepherd) Medically Retired

Retired K-9 "Chezcko"

Officially Retired from the McLean County Sheriff's Office December 23, 2014


Chezcko is happily retired living the good life at home with his handler/owner Deputy Tim McCoy.  Since Chezcko was assigned Patrol with Deputy McCoy it was a natural choice for him to retire with his last handler.  Although Chezcko was at the top of his game his medical issues involving his hips were the reason for retirement.  Chezcko's bark is greatly missed on the radio by us all.  Happy Retirement buddy!
