K-9 UNIT: Marshalltown Students Assist Police

The Marshalltown Police Department recently received some help raising money for the K-9 unit.

Last summer K-9 Officer Creasy suffered a spinal embolism which forced him to retire.  The Department’s second K-9 Awol will soon retire too.

They were working to raise money to replace both dogs, when Hoglan Elementary School decided to help.  The students and staff held a penny war and raised more than $3,000 in one week.

Thursday, members of the police department attended a celebration assembly held at the school.

The police department says they have raised $35,000 of the $60,000 goal.

Both new dogs are expected to be at work in Marshalltown by next year.
