About the Campaign
K9 Jett is a nine-year-old Dutch Shepherd certified in Accelerant Detection. Jett is partnered with Detective Englert of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Fire Investigation/Arson Unit. K9 Jett has been working fire scene since October 2014. Jett is available to help investigate fire scenes for other agencies in Central Indiana. When K9 Jett is not working he enjoys playing fetch with his favorite ball or frisbee.
Here’s how this equipment both helps Jett and Det. Englert on the job:
The door pop allows the K9 handler officer to remotely unlatch the door so their K9 may exit the squad car and come to their aid, should a call for service take a turn for the more dangerous; while, the heat alarm system monitors the interior air temperature of the squad car and sets off the sirens, lights, alarms, and rolls down the windows of the car to help ensure that a K9 doesn’t suffer from heat trauma if the temperature rises into a dangerous threshold.
NOTE: The funds collected as part of this fundraiser will be allocated to the agency’s Equipment Grant Application with Hero K9 for their K9. Should the application status change and/or if donations received are in excess of the goal amount, donations will be directed to the organization’s general fund to provide additional equipment grants and cover operational costs and/or other business-related expenses.
