ECPD K9 Fund



Since the creation of the K9 Unit in 1990, dogs have been important assets to the Eau Claire Police Department.  K9 dogs assist officers with dangerous tasks and work with the Department’s Tactical Response Team on high-risk deployment incidents. The Eau Claire Police Department also has a Therapy K9 that is used to provide comfort to people during times of crisis.

The K9s live with an Officer who serves as their handler, allowing them to work and train together.  They also do community presentations.

The cost of a K9 dog, including the specialty vehicle and equipment needed to support the dog, can be quite expensive.  Therefore, the ECPD K9 Fund was established in 2006 to support the K9 Unit and other special unit needs.

You can donate to the ECPD K9 Fund via the button on this page, or mail a check to the Eau Claire Community Foundation at 306 S. Barstow St. Suite 104, Eau Claire, WI  54701.  Please make checks payable to ECCF and put in the memo:  K9.
