MANCHESTER – Manchester Township Police K-9s Storm and Lynx now have a new home at police headquarters, thanks to generous donations made to the Police Foundation by local residents, businesses and community organizations.
A brand new K-9 Kennel was delivered and will offer the two police dogs a safe and comfortable space to rest their paws when their handlers Patrolman Marc Micciulla and Patrolman Steven Wendruff are carrying out shifts inside police headquarters. The new kennel will also prevent the two officers from having to keep the K-9s in their vehicles when they are inside headquarters for police duties.
Donations made through the Police Foundation that benefit the K-9 Unit help cover the cost of care, maintenance and training, and minimize the use of township resources.
“We’re always grateful to the members of the community who keep our K-9 Unit in mind as they support local worthy causes. The public support our K-9s continue to receive is very impressive and greatly appreciated,” said Lieutenant James Sharkey, who oversees the K-9 Unit.
The Manchester Township Police Foundation offers resources and funding for youth and community outreach programs, police charities, investment in advanced education and training and funding for specialized equipment and technology that help police officers perform their job to the best of their abilities.
