Special to the Tribune

Sheriff Scott Mascher presented Sharon Block, Yavapai County Community Foundation board co-chair, with the "Organization of the Year" award. This recognition acknowledges the greatly appreciated ongoing financial support the foundation has provided YCSO K-9 teams through the past several years. Since 1996 the YCCF has granted more than $59,000 in support of the deputies, volunteers, and their K-9 partners.

The money has been a critical component of the overall program, allowing the purchase of necessary equipment including leads, harnesses, insulated dog houses, and garments which clearly identify the K-9s as police dogs, Mascher said.

Sgt. Jeff Jaeger, the team supervisor, said the ability to provide supplies, equipment, and training with this funding means much to his team.

YCSO currently deploys four patrol K9 units around Yavapai County specifically assigned to drug interdiction on major interstates and highways.

A portion of the money in recent years has been designated to support the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office Response Team's (YCSRT) Search Dog Unit, which pays for search training and human remains detection. It also allowed the purchase of K-9 first aid supplies, rattlesnake vaccinations, a radio and GPS unit. To a volunteer group, this funding is invaluable.

Sheriff Mascher and all YCSO K-9 personnel throughout the agency congratulate YCCF on this recognition.
