Thank you, Firehouse Subs, for bite suit donation

Yesterday, we presented formal Certificates of Appreciation to the owners of the Firehouse Subs restaurant at 4167 Sterling. We did this as a small way of saying thanks for their donation of a $1,550 bite suit to our Canine Unit. The officers use the suits extensively in training, and they endure a lot of wear and tear. One Channel 9 reporter got the full bite suit experience, as did Firehouse Subs' general manager (pictured above). Firehouse Subs recycles left-over five-gallon pickle buckets by selling them to customers for $2. The proceeds go to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The restaurant also collected spare change from customers to purchase the bite suit. Thanks again to all of the customers who donated and and to Firehouse Subs for creating better-trained police dogs who are more able to catch bad guys in our community.
