Southern Maryland Criminal Justice Academy.  During the training, K-9 Brock was injured and subsequently transported to a veterinarian hospital for evaluation and treatment.  Unfortunately, K-9 Brock died as a result of his injuries.

Sheriff K-9 Brock was a four-year-old German Shepherd certified and cross-trained in Patrol functions as well as Narcotics Detection.  K-9 Brock faithfully served the citizens of St. Mary’s County for three years and resided with his partner Cpl. Rishel for the duration of his time with the Sheriff’s Office.   During K-9 Brock’s time on the force, he provided direct support to the Patrol Division, participated in many K-9 demonstrations, and accompanied his partner to schools in St. Mary’s County to assist with the career day and educational programs. Sheriff K-9 Brock was a beloved member of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office and our thoughts and prayers are with the members of the K-9 Unit and the Rishel family at this time.
