Just wondering what happened to the 1 million dollars that Melvindale got in that drug bust. I see that a officer has to have a fundraiser just to get money to get a K9. Cant money from the 1 million dollars pay for the dog ? Just wondering. I will donate to the officer because melvindale needs a K9.
all the moneys gone

Dear Mel Resident the million dollars is gone because Cheif Cadez and his wife the mayor spent it all prior to him leaving. They used the money for things that were not directly law enforcement related but put a spin on the purchase to justify it. The purchases were done to make themselves look good politically. Example would be the keeping the pool open for three years using drug money. You cannot do that but if you put a sign up in front of the pool saying say no to drugs then you skirt around the law and get away with it. Probably 100k spent on that. He bought a new score board for the football team, paid undrug related wages and used the money to fix things in the city hall and police department. It should had been saved and they would be able to buy equipment for many years to come but its gone and officers now are forced to have fundraisers and donations for the K-9.

What a shame. My kids love Officer Allen and Macky. I just hope the loss of that money won't effect the new K9. I'll donate to keep the program going, but not too happy about loosing all that drug money. I hope other people will donate too , more so if you have kids. Good luck guys.

By the way have they named the new K9 yet ?

The fundraiser we held was great. We helped raise $20,000 all together, and the new K9 officer just received his dog from the airport the other day. That money will be used to assist in training and vet and food bills for our newest K9 officer
