McHenry County Sheriff's K9 Deputy Paul Cosman rewards his partner Rocky with reward play on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 Rocky has been with the department 7 years. There is a bill in Illinois that would give K-9 officers the option to keep their retired partners. Right now, most of these decisions are left up to the respective sheriff's or police department on whether or not the K-9 is allowed to stay with its owner when the officer retires.
