FLAGLER COUNTY — The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office has a new K9 thanks to the generosity of the Honorary Consulate of Portugal, Caesar DePaço of Summit Nutritionals International.
K-9 “Jax” was donated by Caesar DePaço, Ph.D., Honorary Consulate of Portugal, and his wife Deanna Padovani-DePaço.
“This is the first time the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office has received a donated canine,” said Special Operations Commander, Chris Sepe. “These dogs are invaluable to law enforcement and we cannot thank the DePaço’s enough for their contribution.”
K-9 Jax, a two year old yellow lab, came from the Vohne Liche Kennels in Denver, Indiana at a cost of approximately $10,000.
The Sheriff’s Office says K-9 Jax will be utilized as an explosives detection canine.
