Let the couch potatoing begin, Brix!
The newest K9 on the Hilliard Division of Police began service Saturday, Sept. 3 with his handler, Hilliard Police Officer Jim Large.
It was the first time Large hit the street with a partner other than Brix in more than six years.
Brix, a 9-year-old Belgian Malinois shepherd dog, officially retired from the Hilliard Division of Police Aug. 30 during a ceremony at Weaver Park, where Hilliard Mayor Don Schonhardt presented Brix with his shield, and Large officially and personally acquired Brix, paying $1 to Hilliard Police Chief Douglas Francis to “buy” Brix.
“There are lots of traditions when a police officer retires,” Francis said.
