lion king, K-9 cars are nothing more than police cruisers which are already paid for with some additions which can easily be removed to revert them to patrol cruisers. All police are required to attend a requisite amount of training every year, K-9 officers included. If they didn't have the dogs they'd be going to some other training so that's a push/pull. That leaves a check up at the vet once a year and food. So, unless these dogs are dining at the Stonecroft Inn every night, I think your claim of $77,000 is somewhat inflated.

Norwich K9 budget for 3 K9's is less than $20k a year. The chief is padding the bill as is the mayor. No transparency here. This is all about reduced enforcement of the laws. It will make New London more dangerous tossing economic development down the drain as well.
