The results are in!
On October 23rd, we asked for your help in voting for Dunwoody Police in the 2019 Aftermath K9 Grant which would help us launch our new K9 Unit! The top 7 winners would win a grant totaling $16,500. Just as soon as we announced the grant, thousands of Dunwoody residents and supporters voted EVERYDAY to help us obtain the grant.
Voting ended on November 3rd with over 200 agencies participating and over 484,000 total votes. Dunwoody Police fell in 8th place. However, due to the overwhelming support of communities across the country, Aftermath has decided to award an additional $5,500 for a total of $22,000 in grants awarded! Dunwoody Police received an honorable mention and a $500 grant toward our K9 unit.
Big thank you to Aftermath for running this campaign. A HUGE thank you to all of you that took the time to vote, share and keep voting everyday. It means a lot to us to know that we have such great supporters.
For those of you that would like to further support the launching of our K9 unit, the Dunwoody Police Foundation has agreed to assist us in funding our K9 unit. You can make a donation online at www.dunwoodypolicefoundation.org.
