Milwaukie Police K9 Unit
The major fund-raiser for this program is our annual 9-K For K-9 Walk held each July. It has become quite a popular community activity, raising enough funding to purchase Yago and Bo/Hank and now Benz at no cost to the City of Milwaukie.

The Milwaukie Public Safety Foundation began in 2008 as a non-profit organization to help the Milwaukie Police Department reinstate and sustain our local police K-9 unit. In that year our first tracking dog, Jag, was purchased. We purchased our second dog, Yago, in 2011. We were also given a narcotics dog, Shaka, who retired in July, 2015. Yago retired and sadly passed away November 2022, he was replaced by Bo, who unfortunately was a little too friendly towards the bad guys. Bo came with a warranty and was replaced by Hank. Hank has moved on to other work and we purchased Benz, a Dutch Shepard, who is now the operational K9 in Milwaukie.
