On Thursday, June 8, 2017, the Manchester Township Police K-9 Unit was honored to accept a generous $2,000 donation from the Crestwood Village 5 Garden Club.

K-9 Officers, Marc Micciulla and Steven Wendruff, along with their partners Storm and Lynk, accepted the donation and presented the Garden Club members with a K-9 demonstration. This generous donation will be put to good use to help ensure the continued success of the Manchester Township Police K-9 Unit. The funds will be used to purchase K-9 unit-related equipment as well as to pay for training for both the dogs and their handlers.

“We very much appreciate that the members of the Garden Club kept our K-9 Unit in mind as they decided to give back to the community. We’re grateful for all of the support we receive from the public,” said Lt. James Sharkey, who oversees the unit.

The Manchester Township Police K-9 Unit greatly appreciates the community’s continued support of the Police K-9 program. Donations are handled through the Manchester Township Police Foundation, a non-profit organization that 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.
