NSP Foundation Receives Donation for K9 Division

 

 

November 3, 2017 (lincoln, Neb.)  — The Nebraska State Patrol is excited to announce that
the NSP Foundation has received a donation of $5,000 from the WRK Family Foundation. The
donation will specifically benefit NSP’s Police Service Dog Division.

 

NSP’s K9s and their Trooper handlers were on hand to demonstrate their skills for approximately 30
kids at Camp Sonshine, just south of Lincoln, Friday afternoon. The kids got a chance to meet two of
NSP’s K9s, Bruin and Otto.

 

“Our PSD teams are an important part of the State Patrol mission. We love opportunities like this to
allow kids to connect with the K9s and Troopers to see the work they can do.” said Colonel John
Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “We’re grateful to the WRK Family Foundation
for their donation.”

 

The WRK Family Foundation is excited to support the Nebraska State Patrol K-9 unit and all those
who are involved in public safety to keep all Nebraskans safe each and every day!” said Jean Jennings,
President of the WRK Family Foundation.

 

The Nebraska State Patrol Police Service Dog Division currently has eleven K9s, spread throughout
Nebraska. NSP is looking to add another K9 to bring the unit to full strength. The estimated cost of
adding a K9 to the team is $10,000.

 

NSP is also among the national leaders in public votes for up to $5,000 in grants from Aftermath
Services LLC. NSP is competing with other K9 units from around the country for the grants. The
public, online vote began in October and ends on November 7. The public can vote for the Nebraska
State Patrol once per day using this link: http://www.aftermath.com/k9-grant/?department=D05204.
