Grant Helps Pay for K-9 Ozzy's Protective Vest

Bellevue Police were awarded a $1,500 grant last Wednesday by the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation at The Giving Back Fund that will help pay for a protective vest for the department's newest police dog, Ozzy. The Bellevue Police Foundation is contributing the remaining $1,000. Ozzy, who finished his initial training in May, has been the only dog in the department's three dog unit without a protective vest.

Cops, Coffee, Community, and Conversation

This is how the very successful "Coffee with a Cop" program has been described - an event hosted by the Bellevue Police Department to provide an informal and relaxed way to bring the police and community together to discuss and share community issues; establish and build relationships; and create a better understanding of the needs and concerns residents have - the framework of successful and positive community policing.
