Swatara Township Police K9 Unit
The Swatara Township Police Department recently purchased their first dog for their newly formed K-9 Unit. The dog’s name is Kix and he is a Belgian Malinois and German Shephard mix. We are so grateful for all of the funds that have been donated by the community to include residents and businesses.
Our work on the K-9 Unit is not completed however, as we are still looking to raise $40,000 so that we can purchase our second dog. Swatara Township has one of the highest call volumes in Dauphin County and to make this unit even more successful we would like to have two working dogs so that their coverage can be expanded.
Every donation helps, there is no amount too small. Please consider donating to this worthy cause which will help protect our community and strengthen our police force.
We appreciate all of the support thus far and look forward to adding another four legged member to our police department!
The K-9 Unit was very expensive to get started and although we were able to raise the majority of funds through business donations and grants, we still have about $24,000 to raise. This is why our goal amount was lowered. We still need YOUR HELP however to complete our mission of fully funding this program through the community.
The police K-9 unit aids our department in various ways to include assisting the patrol division with investigations, drug searches, missing children/persons, school searches, criminal apprehensions, article searches and community outreach programs. A K-9 is an invaluable tool to any police department and we are very excited to see this program return to Swatara Township.
Please consider donating to this worthy cause and help spread the word about our new endeavor. With your help and support we know we can get the remaining amount of money needed for this program.
Thank you for your consideration and please donate today
