GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. -

Greenville County Sheriff's Office is saying farewell to one of its own.

Canine Officer Roscoe was laid to rest November 15, 2013. He was 13-years-old.

Roscoe joined the Sheriff's Office in 2003, and was patrolling the streets of Greenville County alongside Master Deputy Doug Wannemacher a year later. During his 8 years of service, Roscoe helped apprehend more than 136 suspects, make 647 arrests, and serve 705 warrants. He also helped rid the streets of 18 guns, more than 242 pounds of marijuana, 17 pounds of cocaine, and one pound of meth. Roscoe and Master Deputy Wannemacher also recovered over $13,000 in property and assisted in the seizure of $196,083.

In 2004, K9 Roscoe was awarded the Medal of Valor for his actions during a deployment that left him seriously injured from a gunshot wound.

Following his retirement in 2011, Roscoe grew to enjoy his free time with Master Deputy Wannemacher and his family of humans and canines.
