Buzz

The city of Grovetown is getting a K-9 unit, thanks to the generosity of the Shield Club of Greater Augusta.

The city’s Police Department recently received a $14,500 donation from the organization to help establish the department’s first K-9 unit.

The department will use the contribution to purchase a dual-purpose K-9 trained in narcotics detection and tracking.

The funds also will go toward the purchase of equipment associated with the program as well as training and certification for a K-9 handler.
