Connecticut State Environmental Conservation Police thank retired K-9 for years of loyal service  
The Connecticut State Environmental Conservation Police sent off one of their K-9 officers that retired earlier this month.
K-9 Saydee retired on May 1 and was in service for the state since 2011. 
Since 2014, Saydee has been the primary K-9 on 116 calls for service, including dozens of detection calls in which she located hidden fish, enabling officers to take appropriate enforcement action.
Saydee was trained as one of the first three Fish and Game detection K-9s in Connecticut, graduating from the 174th K-9 Training Troop.
She also tracked a suspect and located evidence in a deer poaching arrest in Hamden in 2013.
She was one of the first K-9s on the EnCon team to locate hidden fish, which led to an arrest by finding undersized striped bass on the Quinnipiac River in 2015. 
Saydee also participated in several public outreach events such as The Big E, DEEP No Child Left Inside events, the Northeast Hunting and Fishing and Northeast Boat show events and countless fairs and fishing derbies.
