FULTON, Miss. (WTVA) – The Fulton Police Department is asking for the public’s help to get a K9.
It’s been nearly four years since officers with Fulton police had a K9.
They already have one dog, named Caro, picked out. But there’s one problem, the dog is actually on hold for police, pending funding.
Police currently depend on the Itawamba County Sheriff’s Department or the Mississippi Highway Patrol to assist the city’s K9 needs.
Caro is a multi-purpose dog, who will be able to assist with patrols, drug detection and tracking. This will allow the city have a dog that’s on call 24 hours a day.
The department has opened a donation account at the BancorpSouth branch in Fulton. If you wish to donate, request the K9 fund.
