The Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has awarded Sartell $16,620.

The money will be used to buy the dog, enroll in the training program and buy materials for the program.

Sartell Police Assistant Chief Wayne Schreiner has told WJON News that it's been over a decade since the department has had a police dog. He says after completing the Public Safety Facility, they began looking to restart the program.
