Oldest Police Dog Handler in U.S. Retires

July 10, 2014  | 

The oldest police dog handler in the nation and his service dog, Buck, are headed to retirement, reports the Burlington Free Press.

Shelburne, Vt., Officer Chris Morrell, said it is time for him to step down after 41 years in law enforcement.

Morrell, who served as the first full-time chief for the Hinesburg Community Police, stays in shape with his tracking dog duties, but also has a personal trainer, Dana Apgar, at Shelburne Health and Fitness.

Morrell, who has been cited numerous times for his work, also has been a longtime instructor at the Vermont Police Academy both for Community Policing and Police K-9 courses.

A very nice town! Enjoy your retirement Chris. You deserve it.

TERRY F. ZECH VAPD (RET) @ 7/12/2014 12:51 PM

Congratulations Chris on your retirement. I did 20 years active and 12 years reserve with USN. 12 years as an MWD handler. I then did 14 years with the Veteran Affairs PD. Now I dispatch them to calls. Retirement is good but you are always will be in spirit a LEO and K-9 lover. Fair winds and following seas.
