Earlier this year Sheriff Steve Cox announced a goal of the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) was to raise $16,500 in private donations to purchase a dual purpose K-9 dog which is well trained for drug detection and police work. The LCSO will provide a deputy to be assigned as a K-9 handler and attended the required training. The K-9 would be on patrol with that deputy and subject to assisting other agencies when possible.

Recently the Law Enforcement Restitution Fund Committee (LERF) met and was given information and a request from Sheriff Cox for consideration of assistance on this activity and to help support the cause. The LERF committee has awarded the LCSO with a donation of $4,000 to be used in the K-9 fund.

Livingston County Clerk’s Office has been charged with securing all donations until this office can move forward and contract for a K-9 and training. This brings the total in donations to $8,300 in our goal of $16,500.  We knew when we started this project our goal to obtain the money was going to be a 2-year fund raiser.

If you wish to contribute to this cause please make a check or money order payable to Livingston County K-9 Program and send to the LCSO at 901 Webster Street or to the Livingston County Clerk’s Office at 700 Webster Street, Chillicothe, MO 64601. If you would like a member of the LCSO would be happy to personally pick-up your contribution.

 

Thank you!

Sheriff Steve Cox
