The Mequon Community Foundation advocated for the Mequon Police Department and K9 Unit at Gathering on the Green in July 2021 and successfully raised $8,000 for the police department. This enabled the police department to purchase two Bulls Sturmvogel Evo Street e-bikes outfitted for bike patrol that can be used throughout the city.
MCF representatives, K9 Officers Djuke and Iron, as well as other uniformed officers were present to answer questions and interact with the community. The response from the community was overwhelming.
Chief Patrick Pryor said, “This is a great example of how the Mequon Community Foundation saw a need within our city and reached out to the community to fulfill it. Our department is grateful to the MCF for their efforts which have allowed us to upgrade and enhance our bike patrol unit.”
