ASHWAUBENON - Ashwaubenon Public Safety is looking to add its first K-9 officer. And it's asking for the community's help to do so.
Ashwaubenon Public Safety announced Thursday its fundraising campaign for a K-9 program.
It's hoping to implement the program this fall.
Ashwaubenon officials say a K-9 officer would help them better protect the community.
"Our citizens, students and visitors deserve this layer of protection. And we're determined to give it,” said Lt. Jody Crocker with Ashwaubenon Public Safety.
The department needs to raise $100,000 to purchase and train the dog. So far, it has raised about half that amount.
Donations can be made at the Ashwaubenon Public Safety office or on the department's website.
