In January of 2019, K-9 Unit Kilo started his career.  Kilo, along with his handler Deputy JD Thompson, has completed all of his certifications, and has already proven to be an asset to the team.  We look forward Kilo having a long, illustrious career here at the Warren County Sheriff’s Office, as well.

In April 2017, K-9 Unit Gunner retired after 7 years of distinguished service.  In his 7 years, he and his handler Curtis Hargett were responsible for the seizure of over $500,000 in drug money, 200 lbs. of marijuana, and 40 lbs. of meth.  Gunner also placed highly in several USPCA (United States Police Canine Association) competitions.  Everyone at the Sheriff’s Office wishes him a happy and relaxing retirement.
