HOOKSETT, NH — Hooksett Police Chief Janet Bouchard announced on April 25 that members of the Hooksett Town Council unanimously voted to reinstate the Police Department’s K-9 Unit.
Councilors also voted in support of the Department’s mission to fund the unit entirely by private donations. Chief Bouchard believes a department K-9 unit is an invaluable asset for the community. She hopes to raise enough funds to not only finance the initial start-up costs for the program, but also to maintain the program through the continued support of donations.
Several area businesses have already offered to donate goods and services.
“The residents and business owners in Hooksett are extremely supportive of their police department and have always been very generous,” Chief Bouchard said.
The fundraising effort has begun. If you would like to make a donation, you can do so several ways; mail or deliver checks or cash to The Hooksett Police Department c/o K-9 Unit, 15 Legends Drive, Hooksett, NH 03106, or visit the Gofundme page which is being facilitated by the Hooksett Police Association. T-shirts are also available for purchase at Any money exceeding the amount immediately needed will be put into an account to help equip and care for the dog in the future.
