MOUNT VERNON — With the city’s first police K-9 about to hit the streets, the process can start to add a second K-9.

Dave Culbertson of Arms of an Angel Foundation said the foundation will present a check for $15,000 to the city at Monday’s City Council meeting.

“Collections have continued to go well,” said Culbertson, “And the investments by the Community Foundation (of Mount Vernon & Knox County) have also done well.

“The whole community is behind this.”

Police Chief Roger Monroe seemed a bit surprised that the money for the second dog was coming this soon, but, he said, “The next school isn’t until February, so this isn’t something that will happen overnight. It should go more smoothly since we know how the process works now.”
