After working for together for more than 11 years, Detective Shane Driscoll and his partner Rex are officially retiring.
Rex specialized in explosive detecting and human tracking and has been called upon by many local and state agencies for assistance in cases.

Detective Driscoll says working with Rex was the best job the world, "I wouldn't trade it for anything, I wish I got into it sooner, but I think Rex and I have reached a point in our lives, or at least I have that you know it's just time to go, Rex would love to come in Monday and go scrounge for treats and continue working hard."

Driscoll says he and Rex will ease into retirement, but says he looks forward to them spending time with family.
