The Manchester Township Police Department is grateful for the generous donations recently presented by the Deerfield Women’s Club (Crestwood Village) that will directly benefit the K-9 Unit. The donations, which were spearheaded by Kathleen Wannemacher, will be put to good use to purchase items such as training equipment, canine related vehicle equipment, and additional training for the unit.
“Our community has been extremely receptive of our K-9 Unit since its formation one year ago, and it is encouraging for us to see that they support our efforts to keep our community safe,” said Lt. Vincent Manco, who supervises the unit. “We’re thankful to all the members of the Deerfield Women’s Club for their kind gesture of support.”
The Manchester Township Police K-9 Unit was formed in January of 2015 and includes Officer Marc Micciulla and K-9 Storm, and Officer Steven Wendruff and K-9 Lynk. Donations like this help offset the cost for care, maintenance, and training for the K-9 Unit and reduce the usage of township funds.
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.
