Here at the Officer Brian Shaw Foundation, we’re committed to making available various scholarship opportunities in effort to help promote the general welfare of those who not only serve to protect our community but of the youth as well.
1ST ANNUAL $15,000 K-9 SCHOLARSHIP
K-9 Deuce Badge 29K and K-9 Handler Joseph Martino of the New Kensington Police Department
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.
