K-9 Centa Retires
(December 19, 2005)

Sheriff’s Canine Retires

On August 31st, 2005, veteran Sheriff’s Canine Centa retired after nearly 49 doggie years of service to Johnson County. In seven years on the street, Centa is responsible for countless arrests of fleeing felons and an impressive narcotic seizure record. While she does not accept retirement very well (often sitting at her door waiting to go to work,) Centa does get some satisfaction by sitting in the squad car reminiscing about her "good ole days." At the age of 10, Centa’s new obligation is to oversee the residence of her handler, Deputy Travis Derrett - which she faithfully executes nightly from her couch.

Congratulations to Centa on her Retirement!
