Blaine PD Receives K9 Donation

Longtime Supporter Donates K9 to Blaine PD

Leo Luskey has been a longtime friend to the Blaine Police Department. Over the years Leo has made donations to the K9 unit and has also sent countless notes of encouragement and snacks to first responders. Several years ago Leo met Officer Reggie Larson, one of Blaine’s K9 handlers. Reggie and Leo quickly developed a friendship and started meeting for coffee almost every day. As Leo puts it ”we met at Starbucks to solve the world’s problems”. The relationship Leo and Reggie formed had a big impact on Leo. Reggie’s K9 partner Rex will retire in August and Leo felt that he was supposed to help find a replacement for Rex.

Leo recently appeared before the Blaine City Council to make a $15,000 donation to cover the cost of a new K9 and the training school. Leo, who has had some health problems, included this donation in his will in the event he was not able to make the presentation in person. We are very thankful for Leo and that he was able to see the impact of his donation.

The new K9 is named Tyrone, after Leo’s hometown of Tyrone, MN. Tyrone and Officer Larson are already getting to know each other and Tyrone will start training later this summer. Thank you to Leo for the legacy of friendship and generosity.
