Veteran Police Dog Retiring from ACSO

Posted By on Thu, Sep 22, 2011 at 10:15 AM

After spending nine years with the Ada County Sheriff's Department, primarily fighting crimes involving explosives and weapons, a veteran of the force is looking forward to spending some time with his favorite toys and, of course, a few snacks.


Nukem, a 12-year-old yellow lab, is retiring today, and his colleagues at the ACSO will be sending him out with honors. In addition to helping deputies get explosives and stolen weapons off Ada County streets, Nukem also won several awards in statewide competitions.

Nukem will spend his remaining years with his handler as a family pet.
