The Salem Police Department (SPD) and the Salem Police Foundation (SPF) held a K9 Course Rehab Day June 4. Temperatures of nearly 100 degrees didn’t deter volunteers and local businesses from preparing the ground, building and painting the course structures that help prepare our K-9 officers for work in our community. White Oak Construction brought out equipment and supplies and Project Manager Dan Wellert brought his wife Christine and daughters Rebecca and Sierra.
Despite the heat, SPD officers and K9 Officers Enzo and Jake practiced on the course. A generous anonymous donor surprised the group with much of the supplies needed for the K9 Officers such as vests and hearing protection. The SPF will now pursue raising the $3,000 needed for course lighting. To donate, visitwww.SalemPoliceFoundation.org.
