Brewers, Bucks, Summerfest Donate Money for New MPD K9s

Milwaukee Police are proud to welcome two new specialists to the department: K9 Rocker and K9 Brewer.

Thanks to donations made by the Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Bucks and Summerfest to the MPD K9 Foundation, Milwaukee Police were able to acquire the two dogs. The K9 units help to secure the events in the City of Festivals and additional teams will allow us to increase our capacity.

During a news conference on April 5 at the new Bucks Arena, the dogs were introduced by Peter Feigin, Milwaukee Bucks’ president, Rick Schlesinger, Brewers’ COO, and Don Smiley, president and CEO of Summerfest.

While the dogs rotate assignments and cover all venues, the Brewers’ K9 was appropriately name Brewer and Summerfest’s K9 is Rocker.

The MPDK9 Foundation is a 501c3 organization whose mission is to provide financial support of the Milwaukee Police K9 Unit.
