CRESTVIEW — The Crestview Police Department has raised more than $12,000 toward its $30,000 K9 goal, according to Officer Sam Kimmons.

That is almost enough to add one of two $15,000 police dogs to its staff. The funding includes training for the canine's handlers.

Sonic Drive In is still in the lead to name one of the dogs. The restaurant's owners have donated $2,000 to the fund, with an anonymous donor in second place with a $1,050 donation.

A crowdfunding account for K9s of Crestview shows that another $100 of the $5,000 increment listed there has been raised in the past three days.

Alternatively, checks may be made payable to the Crestview Police Department Auxiliary. 


More money is expected from these upcoming benefits:
