Marquette City Police Department gets big donation from Charter Communications
Monday during the Marquette City Commission meeting, the city's police department received a big donation. Corporate representatives from Charter Communications were on hand to present a check for $10,000 to the department. The money is for a K-9 unit in the near future as one current K-9, Scud, is close to retirement.
"In my company in my role, we deal with security matters every day so, it's important especially when we need to partner with police, we may need them and there's many times when they need us, so we support law enforcement's efforts and this is a way to help keep the officers safe and keep the community safe as well," said Corporate Security Official for Charter Communications Jane Rhodes.
The money will be used to pay for and train the next K-9 unit at the Marquette Police Department. They currently have two units, Scud and Nitro.
