$15,000  K-9 SCHOLARSHIP

2019 K-9 Scholarship Winner

Officer Joe Martino and Officer Brian Shaw were close friends.  When Joe heard that our foundation was going to be giving the New Kensington Police Department a K-9 Scholarship, there was no doubt in Joe's mind that this was his calling.  Joe went through a rigorous, six-week training with Deuce at Shallow Creek Kennels.  On August 5th, 2019 Deuce was sworn in as Badge #29K in honor of Brian, whose badge number was #29.  Deuce also received his name from a nickname that Brian received when he was younger.  Brian always wore the number two when playing soccer, hence the nickname "Deuce."  We would like to wish Officer Martino and K-9 Deuce the best of luck and a safe career.

2020 K-9 SCHOLARSHIP WINNER

Allegheny Valley Regional Police Department

Chief Mike Naviglia and Officer Brian Shaw worked together at the Springdale Township Police Department just before Officer Brian Shaw had accepted a full time position with the New Kensington Police Department.  Recently, Chief Naviglia's department absorbed patrol responsibilities for neighboring Cheswick Borough forming the Allegheny Valley Regional Police Department.  Chief Naviglia has been a K-9 handler for several years.  K-9 Carr is Chief Naviglia's third police K-9.  We wish Chief Naviglia and K-9 Carr a safe career together.
