A popular fundraiser in Bend Monday night will help beef up the Bend Police Department's K-9 unit. Currently Bend Police have two patrol dogs and they would like to add a drug dog to their team. Last night's event brought in $1100. Officer Leo Lotito is in charge of the K-9 unit for Bend Police and is grateful for the extra funds. He says police dogs make a huge difference in their work: “When we have to go search a building, they instantly can tell you where a suspect is hiding, if there's one inside. But the officers its a methodical search and it will take up to an hour to search thoroughly, and its officer safety, they go right in and they can tell us where its coming from rather than us trying to search for the suspects and ultimately injuring one of our officers." Mondat’s fundraiser was a bench press competition and it was held at "Resilience Strength Training” on NE Butler Market Road. The organizer had hoped to bring in a thousand dollars, but they surpassed that by bring in a total of more than $1100.
