Hennepin County Drug Dog ‘Grissom’ Retires

He will spend his retirement with his deputy partner as a family pet.


Editor’s Note: The following announcement comes from the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office.


Grissom, an HCSO Narcotics K9, has retired after nine years of service to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office. His deputy partner will keep him at home and he will spend his retirement as a family pet.

He is credited with the seizure of approximately 3,349.32 lbs of marijuana, 28 lbs of methamphetamine, 1.5 lbs of heroin, 127 lbs of cocaine, 4.1 lbs of crack cocaine, 209 grams of mushrooms, 135.5 grams of hash, and 1,839 tabs of ecstasy, as well as $2,249,700 in US currency.

Grissom and his deputy partner have also received numerous awards and letters of commendation from other Metro area agencies that they have helped, as well as the United States Police Canine Association. One of his most memorable cases -- after a suspect hid cocaine in a neighborhood, Grissom found the hidden drugs by digging with his paw in the dirt of a flowerbed.
