Lacey is training hard so she can join her fellow K-9’s as they track missing children and assist in police investigations. But Lacey and the NNPD K-9 Department need your help! Their office and kennel, in a very old building at City Farm, were recently deemed unfit.
The Newport News Police Foundation is working to secure a site and build these deserving K-9’s and their officers a new home. These dogs and their handlers work tirelessly and are a vital part of the Newport News Police team. The City budget simply won’t be able to cover this capital cost; but with the help of Newport News citizens and businesses, we can build these impressive K-9’s a new home.
