The City of Mascoutah Police Department is in the process of initiating our first K-9 Program. We have received great interest from our residents and business leaders concerning the Mascoutah Police Department acquiring a K-9 Unit, which once purchased, will be a very beneficial addition to our department. This K-9 will be a dual-purpose dog, which will be state certified in narcotics detection, tracking, and apprehension/officer protection. Any K-9 Unit is quite costly for the initiation of the program, as the cost of the dog can be thousands of dollars alone, not including equipment and training costs. However, the return and added benefits cannot be calculated by a monetary figure.
Beginning Homecoming Weekend, the Mascoutah Police Department will be selling K-9 supporter T-Shirts. We will have a tent set up at Scheve Park during the weekend festivities to be able to purchase your shirts. After Homecoming, the shirts will be available daily at the Police Station. They will be $15 each with all proceeds going to our K-9 Unit. Sizes available will be youth XS to L and adult S to 3XL.
If you wish to preorder your shirts for pickup at Homecoming, please call us at 618-566-2964 ext. 501, or stop by the second floor of City Hall, Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm. During the preorder, credit cards will be accepted.
We thank you for your support!
