Hi there & welcome to BdaKiNE.com The San Diego Police Foundation is a 501 (C) (3), non profit organization that raises much needed funds for the San Diego Police Department to help our heroic men and women in blue keep the public safe by:
Funding critical needs such as protective vests that were once eliminated by budget cuts
Supporting programs that fight domestic violence and online predators
Advocating for improved safety measures and practices
Enhancing the relationship between the police and the community
Raising awareness of the services that the SDPD provides to the community
No big surprise that my favorite program is the K9 Unit which has been recognized as one of the best teams in the country. The Canine Unit is called upon when a burglary, robbery, or vehicle pursuit is in progress. The dogs clear areas and flush out suspects who are hiding or fleeing a scene. Often times a criminal will surrender to a police dog before they will to a human police officer! The human police officers can persuade a criminal to give themselves up by threatening to send the police dog in after them.
Police dogs are also trained to sniff out narcotics and explosive devices as well as locate missing or dangerous persons. Because the K9 Units are not designated to a specific area or division, they patrol San Diego’s streets working 24 hours a day, seven days a week throughout the entire city for the benefit of all of our communities.
These dogs are every bit the heroes as their human partners and I’d like to thank them for risking their lives to defend the freedom that we so often take for granted.
Thank you for taking the time to visit BdaKiNE.com & have a grateful day
