A police K9 with the Maple Bluff Police Department has retired after six years in the line of duty, the village announced on social media. 

The dog, named Ali, is leaving the department due to medical reasons on the recommendation of her veterinarian, the village said.

"She joined the Maple Bluff Police Department on Dec. 1, 2015 and has worked tirelessly for the past six years to assist our officers and the public," the village wrote on Facebook.

The Maple Bluff Village Board passed a resolution honoring Ali on Tuesday. The resolution also permitted her adoption by handler Sgt. Kyle Dabbs.

"The Village of Maple Bluff and the Maple Bluff Police Department appreciate the support of everyone who helped make Ali’s service to the community possible and wish her a happy retirement," the village said.
