Oregon, Illinois (WTVO) — Thanks to a $ 13,000 grant from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, the Ogle County Sheriff’s Office has added a new K9 officer to its unit.
K9 Haze is the second K9 in the department, and police can have K9 teams work daily.
“We are committed to helping organizations such as the Ogle County Sheriff’s Office continue their lifesaving efforts in the community. We have awarded this grant and Ogle County has everything, including the first responder. We are honored to be able to play our part in ensuring that people are safer, “said Robin Peters, Executive Director of the Foundation.
K9 is used to help identify missing or endangered individuals, arrest criminals, detect drugs, and protect police officers.
The grant was one of 95 Firehouse Subs awarded to public security agencies this year for a total of $ 1.8 million.
The sheriff’s department said Wal-Mart also awarded a supplementary grant to cover the cost of K9 Haze equipment.
