SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - A new K-9 patrol dog is coming to the Santa Barbara Police Department, paid for with funds from a nonprofit organization.

The Santa Barbara Police Foundation presented Mayor Helene Schneider with a check for $52,000 at Tuesday's meeting.

The money is part of a series of donations by this group to help the police department with equipment and other services for all officers.
