Ansonia police to honor K-9 Thor, retiring after 9 years

ANSONIA >> The Police Department will be honoring K-9 Thor, who is retiring after more than nine years on the force because of a recent illness.

A brief ceremony and reception will be held at 2 p.m. Monday in aldermanic chambers on the second floor of City Hall.
Thor has been patrolling city streets with his partner, Officer Steve Martins, since they graduated from the Police Academy in 2005, spokesman Lt. Andrew Cota said in a release.

Thor has been on more than 10,000 calls for service and has assisted in 442 motor vehicle stops since 2010, Cota said.
Together, Thor and Martins have assisted federal, state and local law enforcement agencies on 240 occasions and have completed more than 30 school security walk-throughs, Cota said.
