ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. --  A beloved member of the Rockland County Sheriff’s Office, K-9 Officer Gibson, a yellow Labrador retriever, has died following a serious medical condition.

Gibson, who was the devoted partner of Detective John Squillini, was a graduate of the Connecticut State Police and worked as an explosives detector canine for eight years and retired from service in 2016, said Chief William Barbera.

The team of Squillini and K9 Gibson conducted numerous explosive detection searches to include schools, government offices, businesses, Homeland Security sweeps, and searches in support of the U.S. Secret Service for presidential visits to the county and outside counties, Barbera said.

"K9 Gibson was a loyal, trusted partner and friend and will not only be missed by Det. Squillini but by all the members of the Squillini family and fellow officers at the department," he said.
