MCF "Woof-a-Palooza" 5 Miler Update

K-9 Officer Success Story

Middletown Township Chief of Police Joe Bartorilla relayed the following information regarding the newest Middletown Township Police Department K-9 Officer.

First chance out of K9 tracking school and Officer Troy Clawson and K-9 Kratos were recently called to assist another township’s Police Department to track a wanted subject. The track was successful, bad guy was apprehended, no bite, no injuries to anyone, he just gave up.

All you could ask for, and a huge success for a first time track for any new K-9 officer and K-9. Hopefully many more successful tracks to come for K-9 Kratos and Officer Clawson. 

Chief Bartorilla further stated, “Wanted to make you aware of the good work done by our newest K-9, purchased with funds raised by the Middletown Community Foundation.” Funds for K-9 Kratos’ purchase were raised at the Woof-A-Palooza 5 Mile Race/2 Mile Fun Walk on November 4, 2018.

The 2019 Woof-A-Palooza is scheduled for November 3, 2019. Registration information and other details will be available on this website later this year.

Thank you to our corporate sponsor, Inspire FCU, our major sponsor, Brian’s Harley-Davidson, and our media sponsor, Levittown Now.

National Night Out at Middletown Township Municipal Building

Middletown Township’s National Night Out on August 7 was a huge success. Many residents were on hand to see various parts of the Township’s government, including demonstrations by the Police K-9 unit. The Foundation presented a check to the Township for the purchase of a new K-9 officer to replace a recently retired K-9. Funds for the purchase will be raised by the USA Track and Field certified Woofapalooza 5 Miler and Fun Walk on November 4 at Core Creek Park. Registration link is available above, near the top of the Woofapalooza info.

The Holy Family School Grant

At our May 10 meeting, the Foundation provided a $450 grant to Holy Family Regional Catholic School. The grant will provide fobs to be given to all Middletown Township Police Department officers for quick entry into the school should the need arise.

The Foundation is proud to support this endeavor to help make our schools safe.

Online Donations

Donations to any of our programs are gratefully accepted. Along with checking, the Middletown Community Foundation also has a secure online account which you can use for your donations to our programs. Please go HERE for online donations.

A Middletown Township K-9 Training Graduation

Chief Joseph Bartorilla had the privilege of attending Officer Steve Andrews’ and K9 Jester’s graduation today at the New Jersey State Police Canine Training Academy.  This was for explosives scent detection school, which was the first of two training courses and lasted 17 weeks.  Steve and Jester will be on patrol in Middletown Township for the summer, then, sometime in October, they will both return to NJSP for the second training course, the 20 week patrol/tracking school.  Graduation for that will be in February of 2018.  That is when K9 Jester will be a fully certified and trained police K9. Below are some photos from the graduation.
