Bond Foundation Gives $50,000 to Oconto Police Department

The Oconto Police Department is pleased to announce that we have started a K-9 program. This program was kick-started in April of 2021 when the department was awarded a $50,000.00 grant from the Leon H and Clymene M. Bond Foundation. The Oconto Police Department will use these funds to secure “K-9 Falco,” as well as purchase various equipment the program will need to be successful. The funding will provide the program with various pieces of training equipment such as a bite suit, narcotics detection kit, and a patrol vehicle outfitted for the K-9.
K-9 Falco is a Belgian Malinois, who is currently going through extensive training at Working K-9 headquarters in Canada. Falco is a dual-purpose K-9, trained in Narcotics Detection, Patrol Apprehension, and Search & Rescue. K-9 Falco will descend upon the citizens of Oconto, and begin his life as a Police K-9 in late fall of 2021. The Oconto Police Department would like to thank the Bond Foundation for its continued support of our department, as well as the City of Oconto.
