Del Monte pitching in $10,000 for Peru PD K-9

Posted by wlpo on September 6, 2013

Ever since a car crash in August killed one of Peru’s two police dogs, people around the Illinois Valley have been chipping in to pay for a new K-9.

Del Monte in Mendota plans to hand the city a check for $10,000 at Monday’s city council meeting.

Police Chief Doug Bernabei says the cost of replacing Kali is about $60,000.  So far they’ve received $23,000 in donations. He thinks money from their Insurance will put them very close to their goal.

In the meantime, Peru is relying on the La Salle Police Department for a K-9 unit.
