HCSO K-9 facility to receive $2M from state

by The 100 Companies

The Legislature is set to provide $2 million to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Regional K-9 program.

Sen. Danny Burgess and Rep. Lawrence McClure requested the funding on behalf of Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister, and promoted by Johnston & Stewart Government Strategies lobbyist Jeff Johnston.

The funds would be used to construct a new law enforcement K-9 training and boarding facility for the office. There, the K-9 and handler teams can train and have secure boarding. The HCSO Canine Section was deployed nearly 1,300 times last year.

The facility is projected to cost $4 million over the next two years.
