K-9 Officer Preservation Fund

Initiated in 2015, the vision of the K-9 Officer Preservation (KOP) Fund is to ensure all of the DCSO K-9s continue to receive the same high level of care and compassion they are currently receiving – throughout their retirement. During their careers, these K-9s are called upon for difficult and physically demanding work. As a result, medical costs in retirement are often extensive.
