The Evesham Police Department K9 Unit was established in 2000 with the purchase of 3 police canines from Holland. The 3 original officers were Ptl. Matt Divito, Ptl. Joseph Friel, and Ptl. Thomas Reinholt. These officers attended New Castle County Police Dept K9 Academy from Sept 2000 to April 2001. All three officers graduated from the K9 academy in April 2001 with their new K9 partners, K9 Aggo (Divito), K9 Justice (Friel), and K9 Luke (Reinholt). All three canines were trained dual purpose and began patrolling the streets of Evesham soon after. K9 Justice and K9 Luke were dual trained in narcotics/patrol and K9 Aggo was bomb/patrol.
Over the past 20 years, members of the Evesham Police Dept K9 Unit have assisted numerous local, county, state, and federal agencies with assignments ranging from missing person searches, dignitary protection, narcotic investigations, and high risk warrants. The K9 teams have assisted in the seizure of numerous cars, houses, and US currency since their inception and continue to this day.
The current members of the Evesham Police Dept K9 Unit are Ptlm. Borden/K9 Spike, Ptlm. Hickman/K9 EZ & K9 Chief, Ptlm. Goess/K9 Tango and Ptlm. Czyzewski/K9 Moose.
