Clinton County Retires K-9 Odin

Posted: Updated:

The Clinton County Sheriff's department is saying good-bye and good luck to one of its finest.  K-9 Odin is retiring.  He'll live with his handler, Deputy Jeff Ernst, and spend the rest of his days as the family pet.

Odin has been with the department since 2003.  He was born in the Republic of Georgia and was born to serve.  He came to the United States and attended Top Dog Police K-9 Academy in Evansville, Indiana.  After 6 weeks, he came to the Clinton County Sheriff's Department to work with Deputy Ernst.

During his 10 1/2 years with the force, he was used 170 and 76 times helping other agencies. 

Here's some Odin stats:

55 vehicle traffic stops

26 drug search warrants

6 high risk search warrants

46 tracks of criminal suspects -- catching 15 for a 31% average success rate (National average is less than 10%)

3 tracks for lost or missing persons

14 building searches finding suspects hiding inside on 3 occasions

16 apprehensions without a bite, where criminal suspects gave up voluntarily once seen K-9 Oden chasing them down
