Canine colleague celebrated

The Culpeper Town Police Department does a great job when it comes to holding ceremonies for their officers who are introduced or promoted or when they retire. Wednesday was no exception as several gathered to say goodbye to K-9 Titan who began serving with the department in 2011. He will be retiring to live a long and happy life on the Grant family farm. He is pictured with his handler, K-9 Officer Eric Grant. Typically, the career for a police dog is from 6-8 years. Sniffing out some facts, a dog’s sense of smell is more than 10,000 times that of a human. The first police dog was used in 1907 in New York City.
