Wells Fargo donates to SPD Police K-9 Program
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The Wells Fargo Foundation has presented the Sebring Police Department with a check in the amount of $1,000 for its Police K-9 Program. Over the years, the SPD has provided numerous crime prevention and community support programs to citizen groups and business organizations through its community-supported K-9 Team.
As you may recall, the Sebring Police Department established this important crime-fighting initiative back in 1999 through the financial support of many generous contributors. The K-9 Program continues today in exactly the same way it did nearly 15 years ago ... through hard work and community support, explained Chief Tom Dettman.
The Sebring Police Department's K-9 Program does not depend on any tax dollars to operate. It totally exists on the support it receives from hundreds of generous citizens, support groups, and businesses like Wells Fargo Bank.
Debbie Ramey, the Wells Fargo Fairmount branch manager, contacted Dettman to invite him and his agency to participate in their Community Partner Program. Wells Fargo's mission is to build strong and vibrant communities, improve the quality of life, and make a positive difference.
Wells Fargo cited the Sebring Police Department as an organization that is vital in accomplishing these goals and many others.
On behalf of the citizens of the city of Sebring and the staff of the Sebring Police Department, Dettman would like to take this opportunity to formally thank Wells Fargo Bank for its generous gift.
If you want to contribute to the continuing success of this program, please forward your donation payable to the "City of Sebring, Police Department K-9 Fund". Mail a check to 307 N. Ridgewood Drive, Sebring, FL 33870, or visit for a tour of the historic headquarters, which currently has on display a special "Centennial Collection" to commemorate the city's 100th Anniversary.
