New technology deployed by Paducah Police Department funded by the Foundation
Watch our segment on WPSD to learn more about the automatic license plate reader technology the Police Department is deploying to help identify stolen/wanted vehicles, amber alerts and more!
Our 2019 Back the Blue fundraiser was a huge success! We have purchased the virtual training simulator for the Paducah Police department and look forward to sharing it with the community during an open house when it's safe to do so! In the meantime, Chief Laird shared the Department has used it to help train new recruits while the police academy was closed and all officers are receiving training through the simulator scenarios related to deescalation and how to handle calls related to mental illness. WPSD featured the simulator recently and the story can be found here.
Meet Don! Don is the K-9 we purchased for the Paducah Police Department Kentucky with the efforts of our 2018 fundraising initiatives. Don’s recent work includes tracking a suspect who had just murdered two people and was likely still armed. K-9 dogs are an essential asset to any police department and on the heels of recent K-9 retirements in the PPD, we are raising money for a new dog to call Paducah home. You can help our cause by donating on this website... Thanks in advance for your contribution!
Over $12,000 was raised during our 2018 fundraiser in support of a new K9 unit!!! Thank you to everyone who so generously donated!
