Ryan Copeland Memorial Grant

Ryan Copeland was a police officer for the McFarland Police Department in McFarland , WI that was killed in the line of duty on November 23rd, 2015 when a vehicle crossed the centerline and struck his patrol squad. Ryan was not only an amazing police officer and K9 handler but also a decorated military veteran.  The Wisconsin Law Enorcement Canine Handler Association (WLECHA) would like to honor Ryan by giving away a grant in his name at thier annual conference held each October. This grant will go to a police department to help them with the high costs of starting and maintaining a K9 program.  To do this we need your help through donations. Please help us try to reach our goal so that the grant can be self sufficient through the coming years and can continue to honor this amazing man.
