Lord served in many capacities of police work. Lord was certified in obedience, subject apprehension, article search, building search, tracking, and narcotics. He assisted his handlers in many different situations and was one of the best officers in Troutman. Lord served the Town of Troutman from September 2008 until February 2018. During this time, he had three different handlers which included Officer Rodney James, Officer Nathan Lindon, and Officer Jamie Benge. Lord was able to retire with his last handler, Officer Benge. Lord had quite the playful personality. He liked to prank people when he was in the patrol car. He would stay very quiet and still. When someone would get close, he would suddenly bark at them and scare them. He did this to many Officers. When he was at home, his “Momma” Jessalyn would spoil him as much as she could. He ran around the house, slept on the bed and got a plethora of treats. Lord sadly passed away in May 2018 due to some medical issues. When this time came his handlers and family were with him and helped him peacefully cross the rainbow bridge.
