Currently, the Watertown Police Department has one working K-9 team.

This team consists of handler Officer Michael S. Maney and K-9 Nico.

K-9 Nico is a three year old sable German Shepherd who was imported from the Netherlands. He is New York State and NAPWDA (North American Police Work Dog Association) certified in Patrol, Tracking, Narcotics and Advanced Narcotics Detection, Handler Protection, and Obedience.

When K9 Nico isn’t helping the citizens of Watertown and educating the community with his many demos, he’s relaxing at home with his loving family.

A special thanks to Jreck Subs Inc.

Without their generous donation the acquisition of K9 Nico might not have been possible.

Watertown PBA would also like to thank the North Country Kennel Club for purchasing bulletproof vests for the area K9 teams.
