Safer community together

K-9 Unit

The Evansville Police Foundation (EPF) extends a sincere and heartfelt ‘thank you’ to all who support our Evansville Police Department (EPD) Officers and Police animals. Donations to the EPF sustain important programs, as well as, provide advanced training and equipment that help police officers keep our community safe.

During 2021, the EPF directed community financial support to EPD’s K-9 Unit. This unit is a significant part of EPD’s community policing strategy. At all times, EPD K-9 teams work to protect our community.

Please help sustain EPD’s K-9 teams and more by supporting the Evansville Police Foundation today.




The purpose of the Evansville Police Department Mounted Patrol Program is to enhance public safety and to build bonds of trust between the community and the Evansville Police Department. The goal of this book is to introduce children to the Evansville Mounted Patrol horses, Blondie & Speck. An interactive book format was chosen to encourage active participation, discussion, and reading together. This work is sponsored by a Toyota grant and other generous donors. We hope you enjoy learning about the Evansville Police Department’s Mounted Patrol Program. Make sure to look for the mounted patrol horses around our community!
