"He'll be living the good life, now."
Officer Beth Larabee
A member of the Lansing Police Dept. is retiring, but he's not your typical employee.
Sarge, a German Shepard, has been with LPD for over eight years.
In his K-9 career, he made 81 successful tracks, helped police make dozens of arrests, and found 14 weapons.
His handler says working with Sarge has been rewarding.
"He's been a fantastic police dog," says Officer Beth Larabee. "It's a sad day to see him retire, but it's well deserved."
LPD's canine unit is made up of 10 dogs. Five are trained in explosives and five are trained to sniff out drugs. It is one of the largest canine unit programs in the state.
Sarge will be living out the rest of his retirement with Officer Larabee, enjoying his time as a gentleman of leisure in her home.
