This week, the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office announced the retirement of K9 Officer Hank who, for more than six years, has been instrumental in the apprehension of suspects and the removal of controlled substances from Susanville streets.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, K9 Hank began his career with the LCSO in November 2017, where he was assigned to his handler, Deputy Meier. In February 2018, Deputy Meier and K9 Hank completed their Basic K9 training and hit the road.

The K9 Officer has assisted Deputies with locating and safely apprehending numerous suspects and wanted persons.

The LCSO also credits K9 Hank with locating and removing, “countless amounts of narcotics and controlled substances from the streets of Lassen County.”

K9 Hank developed a medical condition that progressed and made his retirement necessary at the age of nine. He will spend his retired time with Deputy Meier and his family.
