About the POSA K-9 Mascot Program
The POSA K-9 Mascot Program was created in December of 2010 with the intention to help educate youth how to respect law enforcement and make great decisions. The POSA K-9 Mascot Program has a two-fold mission: the first part is to teach youth how to make great decisions, and the second part is to teach youth how to respect law enforcement within their community.
Our program since inception has participated with almost 100 plus community events and other larger events throughout the valley including: Waste Management Open, Barrett Jackson, Parkinson’s Walk, and many others.
We have made mascot appearances for many events, businesses & organizations some of which include:
- Waste Management Open
- The Thunderbirds
- Barrett Jackson
- Hope For Kids
- Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce
- Partner for a Drug Free America, Mall Walk at Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall
- Kids Fest at Salt River Fields
- Arizona GAIN Events in Scottsdale
- Arizona Diamondbacks
- Arizona Rattlers
- Spina Bifida Association of Arizona
- Angels On Patrol
- Arizona State University (ASU)
- Boys & Girls Clubs of Scottsdale
- Several Golf Tournaments Throughout The Valley
This program would no be what it is today without the countless hours our volunteers put into this program. We are so proud to announce in the last 5 years our volunteers have donated over 1,500 volunteer hours to this program through volunteering at events, attending meetings to help build our program, and all of their help that they put into our golf tournaments to help raise funds to keep our program moving into a positive direction. A BIG Thank You goes out to each of our volunteers for all of the time they have donated to our program.
Taking a moment out of your day to say Thank You to those in the law enforcement community is something that will make their day. Most members of law enforcement enter their career path to serve those in the community they work in.
The POSA K-9 Mascot Program has created and dedicated this page to businesses who go above and beyond to support local law enforcement within their own community.
Since the inception of the POSA K-9 Mascot Program in 2010, POSA K-9 has had the opportunity to visit businesses all of the State of Arizona that support law enforcement through various events including: Grand Openings, Open Houses, Charity Events, and much more.
POSA K-9 is taking this opportunity to give back to the businesses who give so much to the local law enforcement. If you own a business or know of someone who owns a business that supports law enforcement we want to hear from you, so we can add your business to our special page promoting your business.
The POSA K-9 Mascot Program is not looking for anything in return, all POSA K-9 wants to do is to help support those businesses who support law enforcement.
THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO
THANK A COP OR A POLICE EMPLOYEE.
At the inception of the POSA K-9 Mascot Program in 2010, POSA K-9 created unique trading cards to provide to youth at the many events POSA K-9 has attended all over Arizona.
Trading Cards is a great opportunity to build a bond between a young child and law enforcement. Many police departments throughout the United States use to give out trading cards and stickers to young kids that they come in contact with during their day at work.
With the current economy some of these priceless opportunities have been cut from police department budgets. With this said our POSA K-9 Mascot Program has been working with Police Departments in the valley to create this opportunity again for police departments by providing a certain amount of trading cards for specialty units.
Each trading card has a photo on the front of the specialty unit, or tools/vehicles used by the specialty unit. On the back of the trading card are unique safety education tips to keep kids, teens, adults, parents or seniors safe in the community related to that specialty unit.
If you work for a police department specialty unit and would like a custom trading card for your unit, please contact us as we would like to work with you to find an opportunity to make this happen for your specialty unit.
