June 22,2011

Chief Thomas Mauro of the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department is announcing the professional achievement earned by Town of Poughkeepsie Police K9 Officer Vanja Mikelic and his Canine Partner “Reagan”.

 On June 10, 2011, Officer Mikelic and “Reagan” earned the certification of Police Tracking Dog at the Eastern Police Canine Association Trials held in Binghamton, N.Y.

 To earn this prestigious certification, the police canine handler and his dog must complete a mentally and physically challenging course.  The K9 team must follow a pre-established “track” that is approximately 1400 yards long.  This “track” consists of multiple turns and angles and misleading devices designed to try to cross up the K9 Team.  In addition, the K9 Team had to locate multiple articles of “evidence” during the track and alert the police handler to them.

 Each year hundreds of police K9 Teams from around the United States attempt to earn this certification.  To date, only six (6) K9 handlers have ever earned this certification, the last being in 2006.  P.O. Mikelic and “Reagan” earned certifications as “police narcotics dog” and “street ready police dog” during the same trials. 

 P.O. Mikelic has been a member of the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department since 1999 and began a K9 Officer in 2007.  Canine “Reagan” was assigned to the department after extensive training in 2007.  He is a 4 year old German Shepherd.

 Chief Thomas Mauro states “the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department K9 Team has consistently provided exceptional professional services to the community.  This recognition speaks directly to the hard work and dedication of Officer Mikelic”.
