Police asking public for funds to acquire dog for K-9 unit

Burlingame police are appealing to the public to help raise funds for a police dog. The department wants to add a K-9 to the one dog the department currently uses during day shifts.

Dogs are key in assisting officers in tracking and detecting criminals, narcotics and explosives, and are used while monitoring demonstrations and community events.

The department hopes to raise $10,000 and is accepting tax deductible donations mailed to “Burlingame Police Department K9 Fund,” 1111 Trousdale Drive.
