2022 Together We Well. Project

In 2021, there were 14,357 calls made to the Bothwell Security team that included 309 impairments from drugs or alcohol; 42 assaults; 29 use-of-force incidents; 102 combative patients; and 64 weapon seizures. On average, law enforcement was called two times a month for assistance with these calls.

The Together We Well. Club is raising funds for a K9 Security Officer to be added to the Security team to help mitigate the rising threat of violence against our health care team.

Pros of a K9 Officer

  • Increased sense of safety for patients, visitors and staff
  • Positive PR for the hospital; education on violence in health care through community events
  • Use as a de-escalation technique
  • Reduction in use-of-force incidents
  • Recruitment

Project Cost $52,000

  • K9 and Training - $10,000–15,000
  • MSHP K9-equipped Vehicle - $30,000
  • K9 Health Care - $2,000
  • Miscellaneous (food, kennel, etc.) - $4,000–5,000
