Bloodhound “K9 Cooper” Retires from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office



On November 22, 2016, Sheriff Tim Cameron officially announced the retirement of a respected member of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office, a bloodhound affectionately known as “K9 Cooper”. “K9 Cooper” faithfully served the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office and the citizens of St. Mary’s County for nine years. He was well-known in the community for his appearances at K9 demonstrations, but his most vital role was performed in the K9 Unit, where he assisted in the tracking of several missing persons over his many years of duty. “K9 Cooper” will be missed by all of the Sheriff's Office, but most especially by his handler, Cpl. William Rishel, and former handler, Sgt. Todd Fleenor. 

“K9 Cooper” has been adopted by a familiar face: Cpl. Gray Maloy and his family have stepped forward to provide “K9 Cooper” with a warm family environment where he will be able to live out his retirement by frolicking and playing in a large, fenced-in yard at the deputy’s residence. As the only dog in the household, “K9 Cooper” can look forward to many years of being spoiled and doted on by the whole family. After a long career of service to others, “K9 Cooper” can relax and enjoy love, a big yard to play in, car rides, his very own kids and lots of treats! 

Sheriff Cameron and the men and women of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office are proud to wish “K9 Cooper” a very happy, well-deserved retirement.
