Today we celebrated K9 Odinโ€™s retirement for over 10 years of service to our department. He served the department well and managed to make several campus friends along the way. He was easily the most popular officer on the department. We hope he enjoys his new civilian/pet life with his Mama Molly. It was a great run K9 Odin and we are going to miss seeing you walk our hallways. Weโ€™ll take it from hereโ€ฆ.. ๐Ÿ’™

A big thank you to the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office K9 teams for your support!!!
