Floyd County PD to get K9 thanks to donation

February 23, 2021–8:13 p.m.


The Floyd County Commission has approved the purchase of a K9 for the Floyd County Police Department.

The total cost is $18,200 includes the purchase of the dog and the training of the officer handler, according to Floyd County Manager Jamie McCord.

“In January, a donation of $21,000 was made to the Floyd County Police Department by a private citizen,” McCord added.  “The donation was earmarked for a police K9.  After a lot of discussions, we think this is absolutely a good idea.  There will be very minimal ongoing costs.  You will have K9 pay and some annual training.  However, this is a great gift to the Floyd County Police Department and a great asset going forward.”
