INDEPENDENCE (KWWL) -

The Independence Police Department is starting its own K9 unit, and it needs donations. The unit will be funded entirely by grants and donations from people and businesses.

The department is hoping to raise $17,000 for the K9 unit.

Officers say if they can get $10,000 to $12,000 by Sept. 1, they will be able to get the dog by the end of this year.

Costs include the dog itself, the kennel, toys and also all equipment for the K9 unit.

Officers are asking people and businesses to help any way they can.
