Thanks to your generous donations, we provide funds for the MPD K9 unit.  No tax dollars are used:  we purchase the dogs, squad cars, training, equipment, and arrange  vet care and food for all the hard-working K9s.

Proudly introducing October's Dog of the Month, K9 Carl, partnered with Ofc. Dan Wipperfurth. K9 Carl is a German Shepherd, born in Slovakia on... November 12, 2014. You may recognize him from Camp Randall on football Saturdays: he is the department's only K9 trained in explosives and firearm detection.
Fun fact: his name was originally "Reno," but we think Good Dog Carl suits him to perfection.
Ofc. Wipperfurth would like to especially thank Carl's sponsors: Mary Morton; Ruth Clark DVM; and Petworld.
