K9 Kenzo Needs a New RIDE
K9 Kenzo and his dad are having major mechanical issues with their patrol vehicle. These breakdowns have plagued them for two years. Their patrol unit is an early 2000’s model Crown Vic and is not properly equipped with a K9 Kennel or Heat Alarm. The car has been in and out of the shop multiple times and has a history of the engine shutting off while driving, over-heating, air conditioner failure, and serious electrical problems such as the windshield wipers failing intermittently and sparks shooting from the wiring underneath the vehicle when the emergency Blue lights are activated.
Unfortunately, due to budget constraints, resulting in lack of available funding, the local police department has no means to replace the K9 Unit. All attempts thus far, to obtain outside financial backing, either through grants or fundraising, to replace the vehicle have failed. The imminent threat at hand is the vehicle overheating again or the vehicle catching fire, with Kenzo inside and officers not being able to get to him in time. The situation has become dire for Kenzo and his dad. Kenzo and SGT Cade strive for perfection every single day but recognize that there is always room for improvement. They embody the principals of integrity, honor, and duty. They faithfully walk the Thin Blue Line with pride and humility.
These two, man and K9 have become more than just partners. Together they are one, sharing something that words cannot describe. This life is not for everyone, but it is the only life for them. Regardless of their current circumstances, Kenzo and his dad are committed to suiting up and taking the fight against crime to the front lines each day.
