EPD K-9 Fundraising Declared Successful

$12,000 down, $2,500 to go for new dog, handler training

Staff Report
Humboldt Sentinel

With Officer Bryon Franco’s K-9 partner Jimi close to retirement, the Eureka Police Department’s K-9 Unit has launched a fundraising campaign to buy another patrol dog. About $12,000 has already been raised to get a new dog and provide training for the handler, but $2,500 more is needed to buy a bullet- and knife-resistant vest to protect the dog. Anyone wishing to contribute may send a check to the EPD K-9 Fund at 604 C Street, Eureka, CA. 95501.

The Eureka Police Department continues to be amazed by the generosity and support shown by our community.  A special thanks goes out to the Eureka Police Foundation, which is funded by community support, whose purpose is to assist the Eureka Police Department in obtaining needed equipment and resources.  The Department would also like to give recognition to the Eureka Oxygen Company, The Northcoast Employer Advisory Council, and Lithia Dodge of Eureka for their most generous support.

Even individuals and businesses outside of Eureka were major contributors to this important public safety cause.  They clearly understand EPD’s K-9 teams are used all over the county to assist other local agencies and not just within the city limits of Eureka.  EPD would like to extend our sincerest gratitude toward all those whose generosity and support has made the purchase of a new police K-9 possible.

EPD is still in the fundraising mode for the purchase of a bullet and knife resistant vest to protect the K-9.  These cost about $2,500.00.  Anyone wishing to contribute may send a check to the “EPD K-9 Fund” at our address (604 C Street, Eureka, CA. 95501).
