WILTON, Conn. The following is a letter from Police Chief Michael Lomardo regarding the recent donation to the departments K-9 project.
On behalf of the Wilton Police Department and Wilton Police Commission, I would like to publicly thank the owners of Blue Buffalo - Bill Bishop Sr., Bill Bishop Jr. and Chris Bishop -for their very generous donation of $50,000 to the Wilton Police Departments K-9 program. Their financial support enables us to jump start the formation of our K-9 unit, which includes the purchase of a dog, training both officer and dog, food and other essentials.
The generous support of individuals and business owners like the Bishops makes it possible for us to continue our mission of public safety and to ensure the community remains a great place to live.
The Wilton Police Department thanks each of you again for your generosity. You have helped our cause and made a huge contribution to this department and the community.
Chief Michael Lombardo
