The Brentwood Police Department is announcing the retirement of a very special officer from the police force. K9 Officer Lexie, an eight-year veteran canine of the Brentwood Police Department, will retire on Friday, February 28 with an event at Brentwood Library in Meeting Room A starting at 3:30 p.m. There will be a dog friendly smash cake, a K9 skills presentation, suprises from community businesses and a proper send off for a canine who has served the community well. Please note, this is a people-only event.
    K9 Officer Lexie and her handler, Officer Steve Holder, have patroled together since 2012. Lexie, a Belgian Malinois, certified by the United States Canine Association, has worked hard over the years to sniff out marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin. She's worked on numerous drug investigations which lead to arrests. Lexie will continue to live with Officer Holder and his family going forward; K9 Officer Pax is coming on board to assume Lexie's former duties.
