Officials with the Winston Police Department are thanking the community for its support of the new K9 program.
Police Chief Brandon Sarti said donations have helped to pay for K9 Buster, who will be arriving on Friday. There is also a new K9 patrol car. A fundraiser last month brought in nearly $27,600 for the program.
Sarti said the donations have helped to make “this ever so needed goal”, a reality.
K9 Buster is already trained but now the officer that will work with him has to be trained as well.
Residents that still want to help support the program, can contact the Winston Police Department.
