Rally your friends, family, and community to support the WAPD K9 unit!!! The West Allis Police Department K-9 Unit is currently comprised of three canines. Our canines specialize in locating and apprehending violent criminals, locating evidence, and illegal narcotics detection. Our K-9 Unit routinely attends multiple community events throughout the year and regularly visits the West Allis/West Milwaukee school district. The West Allis Police Department K-9 Unit relies solely on the financial generosity of local businesses, family and friends to support our operation, training, and development. We are seeking your vote to help with the continued success of the K-9 Unit. It is currently the plan of the department to retire our narcotics K9, Sonny, in early 2019. We hope to then introduce a new K9 team to take the spot of Sonny. The funds from this grant would be utilized to assist with the purchase and implementation costs of that K9 team as well as the continual costs of equipment for the existing canine teams. Thanks!
