You still have a few more days to purchase raffle tickets that will help raise funds for the Orland K9 program.  Here is some information about the program from the Police Department Site

Why a K9 Program?

Police K9’s are some of the hardest working, most efficient and cost effective Officers on the beat. A Police K9 performs 97% of its work with its nose and mere presence. However, a Police K9 is much more. With community support, the Orland Police Department K9 will be used as an effective education and prevention tool for our youth. We will use our K9 partner in classrooms of the Orland Unified School District to promote drug awareness, Firearm awareness and safety, as well as violence education and prevention. We will work hand and hand, or hand in paw, with the community to promote success and bright futures for our children.

Due to the extreme fiscal climate the Orland Police Department needs your help. Your support will help provided for the following:

  • Purchase of K9 and start up equipment costs
  • Initial K9 training and maintenance training
  • K9 Food and Shelter
  • Veterinary Cost
