On December 6th, the Watsonville Police Department held a retirement ceremony for police K-9 “Ellex.” Ellex and Sergeant Mish Radich were partners for five years.

Ellex was born in Germany in 2009. He was purchased by WPD, with the assistance of the Watsonville Police Assistance Fund, in October of 2011. He was trained for search work and apprehensions, tracking, article/evidence recovery searches and tactical deployments. During his five-year career, his work resulted in over 125 apprehensions and the recovery of two loaded firearms, which were found during article searches. Ellex was retired by the department in November of 2016. He will spend his retirement playing fetch and dreaming of chasing cats!
