After five years of service helping Hillsborough police, Police K-9 Raider is calling it quits.
The German shepherd has been busy, assisting in multiple arrests for drugs over the years—in 2012 alone, Raider was involve in 16 drug investigations, four suspect searches and one incident protecting an officer.
Raider will spend his retirement with Hillsborough Police Ofc. Christopher Engelhardt.
Replacing him on the force will be a Belgian Malinois named Kondro, who began serving the department earlier this month. Kondro was acquired with funds donated by Dr. Caesar DePaco, of Summit Nutritional International, of Branchburg.
