Kronenwetter PD will continue K-9 program

KRONENWETTER (WAOW)-- The village board voted tonight to continue the Kronenwetter Police Department's K-9 program. Officials approved up to $18,000 from the village's general fund to support it.

Board members hope that money can be reimbursed through donations. The police chief told Newsline 9 the B.A. and Esther Greenheck Foundation has also agreed to donate $10,000 dollars toward the program.

Officers had to put down the village's only K-9 last month after the dog contracted blastomycosis. They say while chip can't be replaced, his legacy will live on through the program.

Officials said they don't have a timeline for when a new K-9 officer could join the department.
