WA Police dog Dakota retires from active duty

WA Police dog Dakota has retired after five years patrolling the streets of Perth.

And it was some career, with the black labrador responsible for finding more than a million dollars over the journey.

The force announced Dakota’s retirement in a Facebook post on Monday afternoon.

They said she was involved in a number of huge drug busts in her time, and was looking forward to a long and happy retirement with her handler.

“Wishing PD Dakota all the best in her much-deserved retirement from WA Police Canine unit,” the police wrote.

“Dakota has been pawtrollin’ since 2016 and has detected a total of 14.6kg of narcotics and $1.13m in cash over her career.

“Her biggest busts include finding 1kg of methamphetamine buried in a Bateman property and $250k cash found under a house in Southern River.

“She is looking forward to plenty of beach runs, couch hangs with her handler and playing with her local park pals.”
