On Saturday, May 14, members of the Manchester Township Police Department attended a meeting of the Pet Club of Leisure Knoll where they spoke about the K-9 Unit and were presented with a generous donation. Linda Campezi of the Pet Club presented the check to Lt. Vincent Manco, Officer Marc Micciulla and his K-9 Storm, and Officer Steven Wendruff and his K-9 Lynk.
“This donation will be put to good use to purchase items such as training equipment, canine-related vehicle equipment, and to pay for additional training for the unit. Since its re-establishment in 2014, the community’s continued support of our K-9 Unit has been greatly appreciated,” said Lt. Manco.
Donations like these help offset the cost for care, maintenance, and training for the K-9 Unit and reduces the usage of township funds. The Manchester Township Police K-9 Unit greatly appreciates the community’s continued support of the re-established Police K-9 program.
The Manchester Township Police Foundation is a non-profit organization which provides funding for youth and community outreach programs, police charities, investment in advanced education and training, and funding for specialized equipment and technology in order to help our police officers better perform their duties.
