Through the generosity of this grant, the LCSO was able to field K-9 Borys, provide a vehicle with a K-9 up-fit, and cover the cost of the K-9 handler certification course. K-9 Borys will also on hand for the ceremony.

“Through this grant funding the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has allowed our K-9 program to move years into the future,” Sheriff Al McNeil said. “Without their help we would not have been able to field a second dog for at least another couple of years.
