K9 Ghost Needs Our Help
K9 Ghost is in need of a Heat Alarm and Insert for the vehicle. We are trying to raise $4500.00.
Clay County Sheriff's Office in Machester Kentucky is in need of starting their very first K9 Unit. Their K9 is named "Ghost". He is a 1-year-old Belgian Malinois. His handler is Deputy Sheriff Cody Blackwell. Per Public Affairs Officer, Trent Baker, we have a patrol squad of 6 Deputies not including the Sheriff, our county is 472 square miles. A K9 would be so beneficial to our department and our county, at most times there is only maybe 1 deputy out at a time.
Our county is 472 square miles where radio transmission isn't always the best. With us being able to have a K9 it would allow us to fight the war on drugs and also serve as a separate officer. It's a proven fact that a department that has a K9 prospers so much from it. Our county is small where a large portion relies on government assistance. Our department is a fee department which means our only revenue is from collecting property taxes, serving civil process papers and auto inspections. Funding in crucial and we do the best we can with the resources we have.
