Vancouver PD sees more than $40K in donations for new K-9 officer

Posted: Updated:
VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

The Vancouver Police Department can afford to buy a new police K-9 thanks to more than $40,000 in donations.

The funds came in following the death of a VPD K-9 last month.

K-9 officer Ike had to be put down after a domestic violence suspect stabbed him.

The department now plans to buy a new police dog by spring. A police K-9 costs up to $10,000 to buy, before the costs of training the dog.

The department noted that new police dogs require about 400 hours of training.
