A retired Evansville Police K9 Officer has been laid to rest weeks after retiring.

The Evansville Police Department posted on their Facebook page, "We are saddened to announce the passing of retired EPD K-9 Bobi. Bobi had retired earlier this month after many years of service to the citizens of Evansville. Bobi was laid to rest today at the FOP K-9 Cemetery. Rest In Peace, Bobi."

Evansville Police Sgt. Jason Cullum told 14 News that Bobi had cancer and his health had rapidly deteriorated since retiring.

Bobi was humanely euthanized on Friday.

Bobi spent eight years with EPD. He apprehended more than 80 felons and took a countless number of drugs and narcotics off the streets.

Bobi's final call was broadcast on January 7.
