Oneida County Sheriff Robert M. Maciol is pleased to introduce K9 Enzo, a German Shepherd that will be tasked with Narcotics Detection, Building Searches and Tracking. Enzo is a 18 month old male German Shepard that was imported from the country of Hungary in Central Europe. Enzo was purchased at a cost of $8,000 and the funds were transferred from a forfeiture account, therefore no tax payer funds were used to purchase Enzo. He will be going to his introductory K9 training next month under the direction of Sgt. James Danquer, the Sheriff's K9 Unit Supervisor. K9 Enzo’s handler is Deputy Jason Osika.

In anticipation of the possible legalization of marihuana, Enzo will be certified to detect various types of drugs, not including marihuana.

The Sheriff’s K9 Unit currently consists of three dogs: K9 Kal for Explosives Detection with Sgt. James Danquer as his handler, K9 Natalie for Narcotics Detection and Community Relations with Deputy John Cusack as her handler, and K9 Enzo with Deputy Osika as his handler.

K9 Enzo is being named in memory Deputy Sheriff Anthony Calenzo, a highly dedicated and respected member of the Sheriff’s Office who served our community with distinction for over 29 years. Deputy Calenzo passed away in 2016.
