Find out how to support our Police K9 Program.
Our K9 teams are not just a huge benefit to our own city, but they also are called upon to assist our neighboring communities when the need arises. After years of receiving help from our neighbors before we could have a K9 program of our own, it is a joy to now be able to return the favor and be part of a larger teamwork to the benefit of us all.
What do you know about K9’s? Here is a bit of information:
All K9’s are specially trained for very specific job descriptions. Some are trained to search out drugs, others can follow a trail left by criminals fleeing the scene. Still others are trained to detect bombs or find people trapped under fallen debris. The specialties are very specific and each officer & K9 team undergoes long weeks of training followed by regular continued education.
They are an invaluable part of any police department, but of course there is a cost involved and we at the Mill Creek Police Foundation are able to maintain a fund through the donations received at our fundraisers to assist in meeting the needs.
If you would like to be part of that effort, or if you have any questions or concerns, or just want to share your thoughts, please go to our Contact Us page. We would like to hear from you!
