CURRENT PROJECT: NAME THE DOG!

The Bozeman Police Department is in the process of implementing a new canine program where a police dog will be assigned to School Resource Officer (SRO), Connor Foley to provide an additional layer of public assistance and security.

To see this program become a reality, we are seeking the community’s help to raise $10,000. In addition to raising funds, we are also seeking input on a name for Officer Foley’s new partner! As part of the fundraising campaign, names can be submitted by adding a note to your contribution by using the PayPal link or scanning the following QR Code.

Principally, this specially trained animal will be a facility/therapy dog whose purpose is to help engage with students and assist them through the trauma they may experience, whether in or outside the school. Secondarily this canine would be specifically trained and certified to detect firearms, ammunition, and explosives to assist in providing a layer of security in our schools from various types of threats.

Officer Foley works primarily as the SRO at Gallatin High School and this canine will work alongside him there, as well as be present and visible at all the schools in the school district.
