Golf Manor’s own K9 Unit, Lt. Mike Forrest anf K9 Officer “Chief” were present at The Matt Haverkamp Foundation’s 5K run Sunday held to remember the life of former Golf Manor K9 police officer, Matt Haverkamp.
The Matt’s 5K Pursuit raises money to benefit police departments in the Greater Cincinnati area, as well as honor Matt’s memory. The money goes to the Matt Haverkamp Foundation, which purchases K9s for departments throughout the Greater Cincinnati area. The money is also used to cover the cost of training K9s.
To date, the foundation has been able to purchase 54 dogs for local agencies. In 2017 alone, the foundation was able to buy and train 12 K9s.
