Alachua Police Department Officer David Floyd’s four-footed compansion, eleven year old Niko, served as a working K9 for the Alachua Police Department for nine years prior to his recent retirement.

Retiring after nine years on the job would be an unusually brief career by most standards.

Then again, most standards only measure in human years.

K9 Niko, who served the Alachua Police Department (APD) for 49 dog years, was recognized at Monday night’s City Commission meeting for his work in the Patrol Division of the APD.

“This is the good part of my job,” said Chief of Police Joel DeCoursey.

Niko, an 11-year-old German Shepherd, and his handler, Officer David Floyd, were also congratulated by Patrol Sergeant Carl Newsome, who spoke for a few minutes about the contributions made to the Alachua community by police dogs.
