The O'Neill Police Department will be kicking off the month of May with a fund raiser for the K-9 program.
During the month of May the O'Neill Pump and Pantry will give 50' from every hot dog sold back to the O'Neill Police Department for the K-9 program.
In June the department will be hosting a K-9 benefit trap shoot and gun raffle. The trap shoot will be held Saturday, June 11. At 2:00 p.m. during the trap shoot the drawing for a New England 12 GA. Pump Shotgun will be held. Tickets for the raffle are available at the O'Neill Chamber of Commerce, O'Neill FFA Chapter Member or O'Neill Police Department employees.
The addition of a K-9 Unit to the O'Neill Police Department greatly enhances the agency's capability to track down, locate and capture wanted offenders in rural environments, and detect illegal narcotics in our communities and schools. The employment of a K-9 greatly reduces the safety risk to the citizens and law enforcement officers of the City of O'Neill, while increasing the agencies effectiveness in apprehending criminals and preserving public safety.
The addition of a K-9 serves as a tool to locate suspects involved in serious crimes, aid in their capture, and is instrumental in the detection of illegal narcotics. A safe thorough search of buildings and other hazardous areas are but a few duties effectively preformed. The K-9 Unit assists in these searches and provides an added layer of protection for the law enforcement officers during these dangerous situations.
The O'Neill Police Department needs your support to fund the K-9 Unit. They are asking businesses, community organizations, and individuals to donate funds to purchase equipment, provide the necessary training, and to obtain a Police Service Dog. Equipment and supply donations are also welcome. Your donation will be used explicitly for the K-9 Program and are tax deductible.
