TELL CITY – Jago, Tell City Police Department’s K-9 police dog, has retired after nine years on the force. The officer who has handled Jago during the canine’s tenure at TCPD is Officer Derrick Lawalin. After a recent promotion to detective, Lawalin will no longer serve as a K-9 officer.
He will remain Jago’s handler in an exclusively human-to-pet relationship, rather than their professional partnership, Lawalin said.
