5 P.M. INTERVIEW: Chippewa Falls Police K9 Unit

By  | 

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU)— Fundraising is underway for the first-ever Chippewa Falls Police Department K9 Unit.

The department will need to raise around $90,000 as a start-up cost since it will need to pay for a dog, the training, and equipment which includes a vehicle that must be specially equipped for a dog.

The K9 will be used to detect drugs and can also be used for tracking.
