Leadership Door County’s Class of 2017 is hoping a furry member will be able to join the Sheriff’s Department in the near future. The LDC Board approved the class’ plans to raise the $20,000 necessary to acquire the K-9 dog, the training for the officer, and outfitting the squad car. LDC President Dawn Vandevoort says the class had a lot of great thoughts on bringing the K-9 unit to Door County including what it could mean for law enforcement and community relations.
The class of 2017 is made up of 12 community members with diverse viewpoints looking to become stronger leaders and have a better handle on the issues facing the area. During this current cycle, the class has already toured government, private, and non-profit facilities and visited with local officials.
