The Leir Foundation is making funding available to the Danbury Police Department for the K9 program. Police have submitted a proposal for $15,000 to help offset costs of the program. The funding would be used for vet visits, food, grooming and the like. Danbury has one daily K9 on patrol. Another K9 officer is used for drug investigations and to make appearances at community events. 3 patrol K9s are going through training and will be on the job by the end of the year. This will allow the Department to have round the clock K9 coverage.
