Club members recently donated $13,000 in equipment to the Stafford County, Spotsylvania County and King George County sheriff’s offices and the Fredericksburg City Police. Items donated included state-of-the-art ballistic vests, quilts to comfort any lost children found by K-9 teams, and eleven GoPro cameras that can be mounted on a dog's back to help officers know where a suspect is located within a building. These cameras can help save the lives of both the human and K-9 officers.
