Wadena State Bank and the Jack and Alvida Browne Family Foundation are each proud contributors to the Wadena County Sheriff Department K-9 fundraising campaign. Each organization donated $1,500 for a total contribution of $3,000.

The K-9 unit is a vital part of the Wadena County Law Enforcement providing assistance with, but not limited to: narcotics investigations, arrest and suspect apprehension, search and rescue of missing children and vulnerable adults. The K-9 unit is also used in presentations to area schools educating students about safety and the dangers of drug use. The current K-9 unit, Zeus, will be retiring from service this spring.
