BREMEN — Indiana State Police K-9 Zane has been retired after nearly eight years of service working the road.
Trooper Ryan McNamara and his partner Zane have been patrolling the Bremen district since December, 2008.
Over their career, McNamara and Zane have been responsible for removing pounds of marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, crack, ecstasy and heroin off the streets. They conducted 104 tracks and were involved in 559 building, evidence and vehicle searches.
Trooper McNamara said he is thankful Zane will spend his retirement years with him and his family.
“Zane has worked hard for me and has more than earned his down time, though I think it will take both of us time to get used to it”, commented McNamara.
Established in the fall of 2005, the Indiana State Police patrol K-9 program currently has 40 patrol K-9’s. ISP patrol K-9s participate in over thirty-five hundred details annually from vehicle searches, building searches, tracks, and assisting other agencies to public appearances.
