In the wake of recent tragic events, the Barnstable Police K9 Foundation is seeking to purchase cameras for the protection and improved safety of both the BPD K9s and their handlers. Special infrared and remote voice command enabled dog cameras exists that allow K9 officers to better assess and respond to situations, but the state of the art camera are costly. A single camera costs $22,000. It is the Foundation’s hope that with the help of the community, enough money will be raised to actually purchase one camera, or maybe even both of the needed cameras.
The Kickoff/Beer Release party features music by 57 Heavy, who has donated their time to perform for the cause. Price of admission is a suggested donation of $25 to the Barnstable Police K9 Foundation. ADVANCE TICKETS STRONGLY SUGGESTED.
The Foundation is still seeking donations or sponsorships to cover the cost of food.
100% of the money collected for the sale of the special beer release, “Fur Missile” that evening (and after) will go to the Foundation. There will be koozies, stickers and a special glass available for purchase as well. For anyone not able to attend, online donations are accepted on the Foundation’s website.
What’s with the name? “Fur Missile” is the term affectionately used to refer to their K9’s as they launch towards their objective.
