Aragon PD to raf­fle cooler

The Standard Journal - - POLICE & FIRE - From staff re­ports

The Aragon Po­lice Depart­ment needs help get­ting items needed to make sure their lat­est four-legged re­cruit has ev­ery­thing it needs to be an ef­fec­tive mem­ber of the force.

Aragon re­cently added a new K-9 of­fi­cer Nero to the depart­ment, and hop­ing to get com­mu­nity sup­port with pro­vid­ing for some equip­ment of­fi­cers need to make sure the pup is safe when on pa­trol.

So the depart­ment is hold­ing a raf­fle in hopes of rais­ing funds to help out with Nero’s needs.

Tick­ets are on sale now at Aragon City Hall for $ 50 or 5 for $ 20 for the chance to win a Bayou Clas­sic BC65W that will be given away dur­ing the up­com­ing Aragon BBQ. The white, 65-liter cooler has a value of at least $250.

All the money will go to­ward the needs for the new pooch who is on pa­trol, such as a new cage for the back of po­lice ve­hi­cles and other items needed for ef­fec­tive op­er­a­tions with Nero.

Those in­ter­ested in pur­chas­ing can con­tact Aragon City Hall at 770684-6563 or can go di­rectly to city hall to buy tick­ets.
