The pair are trained in detecting explosives and have graduated from the State Police K-9 Scent Detection School. The class began March 12 and ended June 15. It graduated 26 K-9 teams, consisting of 19 explosive detection teams and seven narcotic detection teams. 

The explosive detection teams are trained to detect 20 types of explosive materials. Mac is a two-year-old German Shepard from Czechoslovakia that was donated by Dr. Ceasar DePaco and his wife, Deanna Padovani-DePaco, of Summit Nutritionals International Inc.

In September, Pawlick and Mac will attend the State Police K-9 Patrol Class, an extensive training program that prepares handlers and their K-9s for criminal apprehension, tracking, building searches for suspect and article searches. Pawlick also handles K-9 Officer Finn, a narcotic detection dog.

“Explosive Detection Canine Teams include a highly trained detection dog and a law enforcement handler,” said Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III in a press release. “These teams conduct searches for a variety of explosive materials of buildings, schools, parking lots, office areas, vehicles and packages. They also provide a strong visible and psychological deterrent against criminal and terrorist threats. The teams are available to assist federal, state, and local law enforcement partners. They will be a resource that is extremely useful to law enforcement agencies throughout the county.”

Kearns thanked DePaco and Padovani-DePaco “for their generosity and continued support of law enforcement.” He also thanked Dr. Karan Oberhansley, a veterinarian at Whitehouse Veterinary Hospital “for her outstanding care of both canines, Finn and Mac.

She has generously donated her time to provide routine veterinarian exams and care to ensure their health and welfare to perform their duties,” Kearns said.
