Retirement Plan for K-9 Police Dogs – aka 401K9

(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Bill Quirk (D-Hayward) and Fremont area students told the Assembly Budget Sub-Committee-3 it’s time for the state to include money to cover some of the cost of care for retired police dogs in the state budget. “I was moved by the passion these students brought to our meeting in advocating for a retirement program for police dogs,” said Assemblymember Quirk. “I could tell they spent a considerable amount of time researching this issue and were very concerned that police dogs, who do heroic and strenuous work, receive no retirement stipend to help cover their high medical costs.” Learn more about the proposal to create a 401K-9 plan in this Assembly Access video.
