Meet Don and Bary, the K-9s purchased for the Paducah Police Department by the Police Foundation. K-9 dogs are an essential asset to any police department and were purchased on the heels of recent K-9 retirements. The Police Foundation paid for both dogs and the training between the dog and their assigned officers at Vohne Liche Kennels.

In 2020, the Police Foundation purchased a virtual training simulator for the Paducah Police Department. The Department has used it to help train new recruits, interact with 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.
