Taking a big bite out of K-9 costs

Knightstown Police Chief Chris Newkirk accepts a $2,000 check from students and staff of Knightstown Elementary School, money that will help pay for a canine dog to assist the department there, particularly with drug-related cases. Kristin Crawford, standing next to Newkirk on the left, is a third-grade teacher whose students, pictured in front, won the “Jar Wars” competition by bringing in the most loose change to put in a jar for the fundraiser. At the right of Chief Newkirk is School Resource Officer Adrian Darling and Knightstown Elementary School Principal Danielle Carmichael. Thanks to the KES donation, Newkirk saidabout $23,000 has been raised for the dog. He said full deployment of the dog will probably begin at the first of the year.
