The Noblesville Police Department has been nominated for the Aftermath K-9 Grant. The five departments across the country with the most votes will be awarded grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. The voting period is open now and runs through Tuesday, November 7. Individuals may vote once per day. Votes will be tallied after November 7 and the winning law enforcement agencies will be announced on November 10.

“Our K-9 Unit is a vital function in our role as law enforcement professionals and this unit provides weekly, if not daily, dividends to our efforts in combating crime here in the City of Noblesville,” NPD Officer Brandon Brooks said. “Our community is very supportive of our police and we ask for a couple minutes out of your day for the next few weeks to vote for our department to earn a financial grant.”

The Noblesville Police Department has three K-9 teams with uniquely trained dogs for drug detection and criminal apprehension. Two K-9 units are assigned to the patrol division and the other works with the Problem Oriented Policing Unit.

The K-9 grant is provided by Aftermath, specialists in trauma cleaning and biohazard removal. Funds can be used in a variety of ways: creation of a K-9 unit, canine acquisition, maintenance, purchase of safety equipment, and/or officer training.
