The Trap Falls Kennel Club (TFKC) is leading the charge to help the Monroe (Connecticut) Police Department raise money to purchase a new police K-9. "Murphy" is a 15-month old German Shepherd Dog that is currently training in narcotics detection, obedience and tracking. Police K-9s are essential members of law enforcement and perform vital tasks that humans cannot, but costs are high, with dogs averaging $10,000. In some communities K-9s may not be replaced upon retirement due to budgetary restrictions.
TKFC previously coordinated the efforts to raise funds to purchase dogs for the Newtown and Orange Police Departments.
