MPD's K-9 Jacquo Retiring After Seven Years of Service


March 15, 2023

CONTACT: Officer Chuck McPhilamy

MARIETTA - Marietta K-9 Officer Jacquo officially retired from law enforcement today.  Jacquo, a Belgian Malinois born in France, is eight years old and was imported by Arete Canine.  He joined the Marietta Police Department and officially went into service in January of 2016.  He was partnered with K-9 handler Officer Powell through his entire career.  Jacquo maintained a full patrol police dog certification through North American Police Work Dog Association (NAPWDA) as well as National Narcotic Detector Dog Association (NNDDA).  This means he was specifically trained and certified in narcotics detection, article search, tracking, obedience, and criminal apprehension.  He was assigned to work Evening Watch, as well as part of the MPD Crime Interdiction Unit (CIU).

MPD Officers that worked with Jacquo have long revered him as a reliable, focused, tenacious partner always ready to help.  In the seven years Jacquo worked for our community he was deployed more than (530) times, leading to over (181) arrests specifically related to his work.  He was also called to assist numerous times with neighboring law enforcement agencies, and federal partners including the DEA, HSI, and HIDTA.  He was also active in the public, performing countless school demonstrations.  

On behalf of the entire Marietta Police Department, we thank Jacquo for his service and wish him plenty of rest, steak dinners, and belly rubs in his retirement.
