Retiring after only 6 years on the job? Sounds good, doesn’t it? That was the case this week for Inka, a German shepherd who’s been on the job with the Auburn, Maine police department for the past six years.Inka was treated to a great farewell, complete with a homemade cake made by Auburn police officer James Phillips. Inka’s handler, Cpl. Scott Corey, will be off to work for the Maine Computer Crimes Task Force. Inka will go to live with a member of the police family.

Inka was a ‘dual-purpose’ K-9, working in both patrol and narcotics. In her service, Inka, found lost children and sniffed out evidence used in violent crimes.

Inka’s resume is impressive. Here’s some of what she did in her 6 years with the Auburn Police Department.

  • Conducted more than 230 drug searches
  • Performed more than 130 tracks
  • Participated in the seizure of more than $131,000 in drug forfeiture money
  • Taken part in the seizure of over 20 pounds of processed marijuana
  • Located 72 grams of crack cocaine in one find
  • Has displayed her skills in more than 20 live demonstrations at schools, camps, day cares and public events
  • Found an 8-year old boy in crisis who had run away from his parents

Have fun in retirement Inka and thank you for your service!
