BCSO new K9 named after The Arc GBC

Yesterday, we received a very special visit from Deputy Taylor Nielsen and her K9 partner, Arco.

After our communities tragic loss of Deputy Pickett: our Aktion Club, staff and families wanted to help.
When we heard that Jake’s K9 Brik would be donated to the family, the people we serve came up with the idea to fundraise for a new K9 puppy to join the Boone County Indiana Sheriff’s Office.

This fundraiser resulted in $2,000 to give to the K9 unit. As a thank you for this donation, Arco was named after us. The people we serve are thrilled to have a special tie to yet another member of the Sheriff’s Department. At our Aktion Club meeting, Taylor Nielsen and Arco were presented with a plaque to commemorate them as lifetime officers of our club.

We are very appreciative of our communities law enforcement team, and very thankful for their relationships with the people we serve. We will be forever grateful for your service. #boonecountystrong #K9Arco #thearcgbc
