Oneida County K 9

Oriskany, NY- The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce a brand new addition to their K9 Unit.

“Enzo”, an 18-month-old male German Shepherd, was imported from the country of Hungary, in Central Europe, according to officials. Sheriff Rob Maciol said Enzo will execute a variety of duties, including: narcotics detection, building searches and tracking. Although Enzo was brought to the sheriff’s office at the cost of $8,000, officials say the funds did not involve the use of taxpayer money.

Enzo will begin his K9 training next month, under the supervision of Sergeant James Danquer, who is the Sheriff’s K9 Unit Supervisor. Enzo’s handler will be Deputy Jason Osika, officials say. Enzo earns his spot as the third dog in the Sheriff’s K9 Unit.

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