Officer Nick Eull

Officer Nicholas Eull & Frees

Police Officer Nick Eull has been with the Madison Police Department since May 2005. Prior to joining the K9 unit, Officer Eull held a variety of positions within the Department to include: patrol officer, community policing team officer, field training officer, SWAT Tactical Team member and Special Events Team member.

In June 2014, Officer Eull was partnered with a male German Shepherd named Frees. K9 Frees was born in October 2012 and imported from Slovakia. Officer Eull and K9 Frees completed a four-week handler's course at Tarheel Canine Training in Sanford, North Carolina before returning to Madison together.

K9 Frees is a dual-purpose police dog trained in both narcotics detection and patrol work. He was purchased through a generous donation made by Mid-West Family Broadcasting to the K9 Unit's non-profit known as Capital K9s. When K9 Frees isn't hard at work, he lives with Officer Eull and his family much like the other dogs in the unit.
