K9 Unit

Help Start the Clive Police K-9 Unit!

The Clive Police Department is fundraising to start our first-ever Clive Police K-9 program. Funds will be used to purchase a dog, initial handler training, specialized vehicle equipment, gear, and funding to sustain the program through its first year. Those costs are estimated at up to $60,000.

The goals of the program are to:

  1. Reduce the flow of illegal drugs through our community.
  2. Help locate lost and at-risk persons.
  3. Protect and assist police officers while pursuing suspects.
  4. Connect with our community through outreach and demonstration to civic groups.

Tax-deductible donations can be made through the Clive Community Foundation Community Impact Fund. Gifts can be made online (https://clivecommunityfoundation.org/give/) or by check (Clive Community Foundation, PO Box 71367, Clive, IA 50325).  Please specify that your donation is for the Clive Police Department K-9 Unit.  if you have any questions, contact Officer Brian Kempnich at 515-278-1312 (bkempnich@cityofclive.com).
