CRISP COUNTY- May 9, 2019
Sheriff Billy Hancock and the Crisp County Sheriff’s Office are mourning the loss of one of their own. On Thursday, May 9, 2019, K-9 Roscoe, a 4-year-old Bloodhound, died unexpectedly of natural causes. K-9 Roscoe began working for the Crisp County Sheriff’s Office in 2015 after achieving his Tracking Certification thru South GA K9. He was nationally certified in Tracking with the National Narcotic Detector Dog Association (NNDDA). K-9 Roscoe’s accomplishments also included a 3rd place in Hound Tracking in 2016, a 1st place in Hound Tracking in 2017, and a 2nd place in Hound Tracking in 2018 at the South GA K9/NNDDA Conference.
K9 Roscoe was a vital member of Crisp County Sheriff’s Office K9 Tactical Tracking Team as he worked to locate offenders of various crimes as well as missing children and endangered missing adults.
In addition to law enforcement duties, K9 Roscoe was involved in community, church and school safety programs. K9 Roscoe was always eager to help teach the youth of our community how to stay safe and make the best decisions. He always loved the hugs and pats from children and of course the “peanut butter & jelly” treats.
K-9 Roscoe’s partner, Captain Michael Fraser stated, “Roscoe was not only a loyal partner, he was a trusted and loved member of my family. He will be sorely missed and never forgotten.”
