Rocky leaves the beat in El Cajon after five years
Rocky, scourge of drug dealers and other bad guys, is retiring for health reasons after five years on the beat for the El Cajon Police Department.
Rocky, a 9-year-old Belgian Malinois, has severe arthritis. He's going to live with his partner, El Cajon police officer Ken Davenport.
Rocky never had to bite a suspect. His snarl was enough to make even armed suspects surrender, police said.
"Rocky deserves the best possible retirement," said Chief Pat Sprecco.
