The K-9 Club was established in January, 2015, to assist the Palm Beach County School District Police Department in the purchase and sustainability of K-9 Officers. Our most valuable assets are our children and officers are tasked with ensuring their safety and security on a daily basis. We are seeking assistance with funding to purchase highly trained dogs that specialize in detecting narcotics, explosives, and even weapons. These dogs also help open a line of communication between students and police officers. Each dog costs between $7,000 and $8,000 which includes training for the life of the K-9 Officer. In addition, specialized vehicles must be purchased to transport the K-9 Officers. The infrastructure is in place to receive the dogs and get them to work. Any assistance you can provide in our effort to secure funding would be greatly appreciated. Whether a large or small amount, we are grateful.
