On July 27, 2017 Gavin Buchanan Memorial Foundation president Susie Slankard, trustees Billy Slankard, Rachel Johnson and Brett Miller proudly presented Fairfield CA Police K9 unit with a check for $3,000 made payable to the Fairfield Police Department Canine Association. These funds will go toward the support and safety of FFPD’s K9s. Several family members and friends looked on as newly appointed Fairfield Chief of Police Randy Fenn accepted the check on behalf of the K9 unit. We were treated to friendly and educational meet and greets by K9 Leon with handler Officer Gutierrez, K9 Ludo with handler Officer Aagaard, K9 Hektor with handler Officer Martin, K9 Cort with handler Officer Pena and the newest K9 and Handler to join the force, Xxero (pronounced Zero) and Officer Amanda Graham who is also the first ever female K9 Handler for Fairfield PD. During a photo shoot, Chief Fenn presented GBMF President with a plaque expressing their gratitude for our support.
Approximately 30 Fairfield Police Officers and their wives and/or guests attended our March 2017 Crab Feed and were instrumental in the success of the event, helping GBMF raise $16,000. It is honor and privilege to carry on Gavin’s Legacy of protecting Law Enforcement K9’s.
