Facility Dog Nikko

The New Castle County Police Department is proud to announce the newest member to our department, Nikko, a fully trained, facility assistance dog. Nikko was received through the nonprofit organization, Canine Companions for Independence. Nikko is handled by Master Corporal Christopher Gigliotti and Master Corporal Kristen Hester, of the Community Services Unit. Nikko comes to work every day with a very specific purpose: increase community communication, attend Community Service events and meetings, and he is used to help calm and comfort witnesses, crime victims and anyone who may otherwise be afraid, uncomfortable or nervous.
