TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Leon County Sheriff's Office held a retirement ceremony Wednesday morning, but not for one of its two-legged deputies, instead one with four legs.

Murdock has served LCSO for seven years and has also worked at Sable Palm Elementary School as a mascot.

"The work that these dogs put in to their craft, the work that goes in as a handler for him to be recognized for the things he has done over the course of his career here," said Sergeant Chuck Mehr. "That's all that matters to us, that something cool like that can happen for these animals."

Congratulations to Murdock and a job well done protecting our community.
