A moment of silence for Marco

One of Millville PD's retired K-9's passed.

Detective Lt. Les Watson reported the passing of Marco, a Belgium Malinois, on Tuesday.
“Imported from Holland, retired police K9 Marco. . . joined the Millville police department in 2001 and was assigned to officer Terrance Fawcett, as his K9 handler,” said Watson.

He also noted that Marco had an extensive education in law enforcement.

“K9 Marco graduated from the NJ Police Canine Association Academy in 2001 where he obtained his certification in patrol work. Later that year, K9 Marco graduated the NJ State Police Canine Academy and was certified in narcotic work.”

Watson said Marco worked for six years, and then retired in 2007 to live with Fawcett and his family.

“K9 Marco is credited with countless criminal apprehensions and narcotic seizures during his career,” concluded Watson.
