Per their website: “Aftermath Services is the premier provider of trauma cleaning and biohazard remediation. For over 20 years, we have provided professional and compassionate services to more than 18,000 families, communities, and businesses after traumatic events. We believe that our customers deserve the highest quality service while being treated with dignity and respect.”

Regarding their grant, they state: “The Aftermath K9 Grant was founded to showcase, support, and reward the unique contributions made by law enforcement and their K9 units across the country. Indirectly, the K9 Grant raises safety awareness and community kinship throughout the neighborhoods that Aftermath and our law enforcement partners proudly serve.”

This year, the Aftermath K9 Grant will award a total of $16,500 in grants that can be used to further established K9 units or to create brand new ones. Communities nationwide will determine the top eight award recipients through popular vote.

  • $5,000 – 1st place grant recipient
  • $4,000 – 2nd place grant recipient
  • $3,000 – 3rd place grant recipient
  • $2,000 – 4th place grant recipient
  • $1,000 – 5th place grant recipient
  • $500 – 6th to 8th place grant recipients

The voting period begins on October 18th and concludes on November 2nd. Anyone in the community – whether you are a citizen, a student, a local business representative, or a fellow officer – can vote to support the K.P.D. K9 Unit!

Please don’t just vote once and forget about us. After you vote the first time, keep going back and voting again and again. There are two ways to vote:

3) Vote once every 12 hours online, at https://www.aftermath.com/k9-grant/

AND

4) Vote once daily on Instagram (follow @AftermathK9Grant for instructions).

Votes will be tallied after the voting period ends, and the winning K9 units will be announced on November 5, 2018. So be sure to spread the word, and come back twice daily from October 18th until November 2nd to ensure that our department wins a grant!
