Sheriff's Office K-9 Team Recognized by USPCA
May 4, 2018

A Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office K-9 team was recently recognized by the United States Police Canine Association (USPCA).

Deputy Griffin Bush and K-9 Archie were recently awarded the USPCA Region 5 "Catch of the Quarter". The award was based on an arrest the pair made on February 7, 2018 at an apartment complex near Lynch Road and N. Green River Road. Deputy Bush was assisting the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in locating a wanted felon who had failed to return to the work release program.

Deputy Bush shouted warnings into the apartment where the suspect was believed to be hiding and then began a search. K-9 Archie located and apprehended the suspect hiding in a hollowed out box spring under a mattress.

Archie is a 4-1/2 year old German Shepard with over 30 captures to his credit. Deputy Bush has served as a deputy sheriff for the last six years and received his K-9 in January of 2016.
