Retiring from the Police force is one of the proudest moments of anyone’s life. A retirement party is definitely a great way to commend someone for their loyal and constant devotion to save and serve humanity. After all Police force spent each and every waking moment of their lives keeping us safe and sound.
However, this retirement celebration organized by the Indianapolis TSA explosive detection unit has become a worldwide internet sensation after the video of the party was posted online. However, the star of the Surprise retirement party is a four-legged cuddle buddy and not human.
Ttirado had been working with the Indianapolis Airport k9 explosive unit for the past 8 years. The adorable black labrador was one of the most liked squad members who is known for his intelligence and a keen sense of detection.
His retirement from the force was meant to have a huge emotional impact on the entire team so a grand surprise was planned by the team for him. Interestingly enough Ttirado was named after Hector Luis Tirado Jr., a brave NY firefighter who lost his life during the 9/11 Twin Tower Attack.
