HOUSTON – The Harris County Sheriff's Office (HCSO) is proud to announce the retirement of two K9 partners who served the agency and the community well. The agency's K9 Unit will celebrate their dedication and faithful years of service on Thursday, August 3, at noon at the HCSO Academy located at 2316 Atascocita Rd, Humble, TX 77396. 

As part of the celebration, leadership will present each K9 with a retirement certificate. K9 Bady and K9 Grizly will spend their golden years with their handlers.
