New Palestine Police K9

The Town of New Palestine Police Department is excited to officially announce the start of our fundraising drive for our Police K9 program! This moment has been years in the making and has been preceded by hours of studies, meetings and presentations to Town Officials. This is the biggest community initiative that our police department has undertaken in recent memory.  

 For this program to get off the ground we will need the help of everyone in our community. The first priority of our K9 program will be to provide connectivity with the community. Secondly, our K9 will be dual trained to track suspects and find missing people as well as detect narcotics. The K9 will also be available, through existing mutual aid agreements, to help our neighboring agencies when they need K9 services. Up until this point our department has relied on outside help when we needed a K9, so we are looking forward to being able to return the favor. 

 Our target goal for fundraising is $20,000. The biggest expense up front will be purchasing of the K9 and a specialized cage for our vehicle to become a K9 unit. The remaining balance of the money will be used to send the K9 and handler to training.  We will also need continued help to provide veterinary care, food and ongoing training for the K9 partnership.  

We are actively seeking the help of every community and civic organization in the New Palestine area, (such as fire departments, church groups, social clubs, youth groups, charity groups, etc.). If you are the head of or represent any of these organizations please reach out to us so we can work on fun and original ideas to help meet our fundraising goals.  We are also asking for the help of any business, large or small, that can partner with us on this program.  All donations will go directly to the K9 program and will not be used for any other budget item. 

We need your help to make this program a success.  It's up to everyone to pull together to make this happen. Because of crime trends and the heroin epidemic this program is now more important than ever. This program will directly impact the quality of life in our area and will help keep our community safe.  Thank you in advance for your support and please contact us with your ideas or with any questions you have about the program.
