A retired Rock County Sheriff K9 officer passed away this week. K9 Dex started duty on April of 2010 and served until his retirement on October of 2016.
The Rock County Sheriff’s Office says Dex worked alongside Deputy Shawn Nolan in the Patrol Bureau, SWAT, and the Special Investigation Unit.
Dex sniffed for narcotics at schools and traffic stops, and assisted in apprehending suspects in burglaries and locating missing persons.
“Dex was spoken highly of by his fellow deputies that he protected and was one of the best partners that Deputy Shawn Nolan ever had the pleasure of working with.” the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
