Gladstone Public Safety announced the completion of the first phase of short-term donation seeking for the K9 program Monday.

As of Monday morning, Officer Ryan Peterson has raised approximately $60,000 towards the program. The department expressed gratitude towards those who donated.

According to GPSD, they are now moving into the second phase of planning. In this phase a committee will be established to create a best action plan for short-term and long-term goals.

Upon completion of the second phase, GPSD will move into the implementation phase, which is the final step towards the K9 program.

GPSD mentioned the final two phases do not have a timeline of completion, but it is their hope to proceed at a reasonable pace to create a K9 program that will be sustained for years to come.
