Kevin Polito, owner of Polito’s Pizza in Stevens Point, announced that he would made a contribution towards the second canine unit for the Portage County Sheriff’s Office. Polito donated a very generous sum of $2500 and encourages others to contribute as well.
“It was completely unexpected, but most welcome,” said Sheriff John Charewicz. “I am continually amazed at the generosity of our citizens and local businesses. We appreciate everything they do, and in turn, we do our very best for them.”
The Sheriff’s Office currently operates one canine unit and hopes for have a second on patrol by June 2014. The program is supported through donations and fundraisers.
Anyone interested in donating should call the Sheriff’s Office at 715.346.1400.
