After five years of dedicated service to the Fort Walton Beach Police Department, it has come time for K9 Bane to enjoy his well-deserved retirement.
Each expertly-trained K9 officer plays an important role for the police, contributing significantly to the pursuit of public safety and crime prevention.
Such was the career of K9 Bane, who, alongside his handler, Detective Trujillo, has done so much for the entire community.
K9 Bane’s heartwarming send-off has touched many hearts all over the world.
Happy Retirement, K9 Bane
In a video posted by the Fort Walton Beach Police Department on social media, we witness the heartwarming moment when K9 Bane, set to retire soon, is treated to a bowl of whipped cream.
This is a sweet gesture of gratitude for his dedicated service.
His handler, Detective Trujillo, spreads the whipped cream from a can into a silver dog bowl while activating his radio for a final send-off.
Meanwhile, like a true professional, K9 Bane sat calmly next to his handler and partner of five years. He was still very excited to receive his treat.
“This is the reason I’m doing this at the end of the shift because he’ll blow up the back of my car,” officer Trujillo said at the beginning of the video.
When the delicious treat was ready, K9 Bane was ordered to sit while Detective Trujillo activated his radio, saying “414, show Bane 3-7”.
“Just want to thank you. I’ll miss you. You’ve been a great release dog, and you got to be my friend. Thank you for your service,” said the person over the radio in his final send-off.
As his colleagues were saying goodbye to him, K9 Bane was enjoying his delicious treat, licking it all up.
