The M&M Area Community Foundation recently awarded a $6,180 grant to the Menominee County Sheriff’s Department to equip a patrol vehicle for K9 use.  The funding will be used to purchase a K9 and prisoner split transport insert, air circulation fan, Heat-n-Breeze deluxe heater, and emergency door deployment and heat alert system.

“These items will ensure our K9 officer Kado remains safe and comfortable inside the patrol vehicle,” stated Jen Bastien, who applied for the grant on behalf of the County.

The Menominee County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for identifying, enforcing, investigating, and eliminating illicit substances in our communities.  The K9 teams are instrumental in this process by performing essential services related to the detection and tracking of illegal substances, as well as the apprehension of criminals. The K9 program is not government funded so grants such as these make a significant community impact.  The Sheriff’s Department continues to fundraise to sustain the K9 program into the future
