2016 K9 Unit Calendar Sales Raise $20,000 for WPS Endowment Fund
Tails are wagging in appreciation for everyone who purchased a calendar as part of the 2016 K9 Unit Fundraiser in support of the Winnipeg Police Service Endowment Fund. Sales of this year’s calendar, featuring the dedicated Police Service Dogs of the Winnipeg Police K9 Unit, resulted in a $20,000 donation to the fund.
The Winnipeg Police Service Canine Unit is comprised of 12 teams. The Police Service Dogs are trained in tracking, criminal apprehension, obedience, evidence recovery, narcotic and explosive detection. The Police Service Dogs are responsible for hundreds of arrests each year.
Members of the WPS K9 Unit also extend their warmest appreciation for all those who made this project possible including photographer Dave Swiecicki, designer Rahim Dostmohamed as well as
