On Friday, August 16, 2013 the Chester County Sheriff’s K-9 Unit is hosting its 2nd Annual “Cruise Night” from 7 p.m.- 10 p.m. The car show will be held at the Government Services Center Building located at 601 Westtown Road, West Chester, PA 19380.
Sheriff Carolyn Bunny Welsh and the Deputy Sheriffs have organized the event to bring awareness to the six K-9 units in the Chester County Sheriff’s Office who provide services to all law enforcement agencies in the five-county region. Proceeds will assist the K-9 units for training and equipment.
The basic cost of a dog including training is more than $15,0000. Once certified, both dogs and handlers require continued training and recertification. A fully trained experienced K-9 team is valued at more than $30,000.
There are six K-9 teams in the Chester County Sheriff’s Office. They provide Narcotics, Explosive and Accelerant Detection. They are also used for Patrol, Tracking, Search, and Tactical Operations. The Sheriff’s Office K-9 division uses a proactive preventative approach to provide public safety and security at large events.
Join the Chester County Sheriff’s K-9 Unit and its extraordinary canines, Sabre, Leo, Yukon, Afra, Buster, and Jessie for a night of fun including a DJ, food and drinks, and cars!
