Trooper Jimmy Davis
 Trooper Pat Earp
Trooper Jason Lemery
Florida Highway Patrol

K-9 York began his eight years of service with the Florida Highway Patrol in July 1995. During his service "York" was in part responsible for the arrest of over 400 individual felons that transported drugs on the highways of Florida. "York" was retired in July 2003 due to health reasons. His handler was Trooper Jimmie Davis and they were assigned to Central Florida’s I-75 corridor. "York" and Trooper Davis were partnered with Trooper Pat Earp for two years and then with
Trooper Jason Lemery for the remainder of “York’s” career."York" was involved in thousands of vehicle searches that resulted in the discovery of over 5,000 pounds of Marijuana,
136 pounds of Cocaine, 3,000 doses of Ecstasy, and 22 pounds of GHB (Date Rape Drug). Additionally "York" was instrumental in the seizure of significant amounts of U.S. Currency, Methamphetamine, Heroin, LSD, Anabolic Steroids and other dangerous drugs. All of these Florida Highway Patrol seizures started with just a traffic stop and totaled over $10 million dollars, resulting in over 2,000 criminal charges. In addition to his highway patrol duties, “York” assisted other agencies to further their investigations, resulting in seizing drugs and other contraband worth over $150,000.00. K-9 York died February 24, 2006, and is remembered and missed by all that had the pleasure to know him.

 afforded a memorial service complete with all the "pomp and circumstance" offered an office who dies while still actively serving as a police ;officer.  Youri was honored with a flag draped casket, a flag ceremony, the playing of taps and a 21 gun salute.  A fitting tribute to an outstanding member of the Delaware County Sheriff's Office.
