North Fayette has received $12,525 toward expenses for a police dog that is expected to join the force in May.

The National Association of Chiefs of Police Inc. in Titusville, Fla., awarded the department a $5,000 matching grant this month, North Fayette police Chief Mark O'Donnell said Tuesday night.

Township police had raised an additional $7,525 through donations and fundraisers in December.

"Our citizens and our businesses have really stepped up, and we're very pleased they're helping us get this [K-9] program going," Chief O'Donnell said.

North Fayette police applied last year for a K-9 grant from the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation. Nine awardees are expected to be announced this week.
