Essential equipment includes specialized equipment for the K-9 dog (bullet/stab-protective K-9 vests, K-9 first aid kits, canine oxygen masks, reflective K-9 gear, specialized harnesses), training/protective clothing (bite suits/pants/jackets/sleeves/hand protectors/helmets), K-9 cruiser specialized items (kennels, heat detector/door popper units, secure storage units, door panels, window guards/fans, rear A/C systems), training aids (scent kits), training equipment (K-9 agility structures, scent-training boxes).

Training distinct from customary and usual K-9 training is funding for training staff, K-9 handlers and their K-9 partners to attend training seminars or to fund guest trainers. Priority will be given to training that will benefit more handlers (ie: for Trainers or for guest trainers that are invited to conduct a seminar open to multiple departments or for handlers that are willing to present what they learned in a seminar to multiple departments). Training support will not include minimal department-required in-service for certification, additional areas of certification or re-certification / maintenance training.

Purchase of dogs is partial funding of a dog specifically for K-9 Police Law Enforcement work.
