- The Chippewa Falls Police Department is just about $10,000 away from having a K9 unit. 

The department started fundraising for a K9 officer back in October, and hoped to collect $92,000 to help pay for the dog, training and other expenses.
 
Thursday, officials told News 18 they've raised nearly $80,000 so far. 

The Chippewa Falls City Council has agreed to pay about $10,000 dollars a year to cover annual costs like food and vet bills.
