Hackettstown Police Department K-9 Unit awarded Aftermath Services K-9 grant

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – The Hackettstown Police Department has won its first ever K-9 grant from Aftermath Services.

Aftermath Services distributed $22,000 in grants this year across 16 police departments nationwide. Grant winners are determined by the number of online votes.

Patrolman Laver and K-9 Jada garnered the fourth-most votes of any law enforcement agency in the country.

“Due to the support from the community, we were able to receive $2,000 in grant money to go towards our K-9 Unit. Thank you again to everyone who voted,” Hackettstown Police said.

For 10 years, the Aftermath K-9 Grant has given back to police departments and first responder units across the country by awarding more than $100,000 in grants. These grants have allowed departments to purchase their very first K-9, to fund safety and training equipment, and to maintain existing K-9 programs. The Aftermath family is proud to support the local K-9s, officers, and first responders who keep our communities safe and protected, according to Aftermath’s website.
