Posted on 02/09/2021
New Hope K9 Kody is retiring after serving the New Hope community for the past eight years.

Kody, a nine-year-old German Shepard, joined the New Hope Police Department in 2013 and has worked tirelessly alongside his handler, Officer Miguel Robles. Throughout his career, Kody was deployed more than 1,200 times and played an enormous role in locating missing and vulnerable persons, locating narcotics and articles of evidence, and finding and apprehending suspects. For his hard work, Kody was commended many times by the United States Police Canine Association (USPCA), including several Regional Case of the Quarter awards and a National Case of the Quarter. Kody was a fixture at New Hope events where he and Officer Robles diligently educated the community about the role that K9s play in law enforcement.

Upon completing his last shift on Tuesday, Feb. 9, Kody plans to enjoy retirement with his handler’s family. Good boy, Kody and congratulations on your retirement!
