How Fios the dog is helping serve and protect the citizens of Camden

You know about Fios, our premier fiber optic TV, Internet and voice services. Now meet our furry and friendly four-legged police officer in New Jersey, also named Fios, helping Camden’s police department protect the local community.

In 2014, Verizon made a donation to Camden County to purchase and train K-9 Fios. In 2016, Verizon donated again to purchase and train a second K-9 named Recon. These police dogs are making their community a safer and happier place to live.

“I see my dog more than my family. I come to work, he comes to work with me and when I go home, he’s with me,” says Joseph Olivo, an officer at the Camden County Police department. “The bond that my partner Fios and I have is a lot stronger than I would say any other officer that I ever worked with.”

Fios and Recon are making a huge difference in Camden, and we're proud to them call honorary members of the V Team.
