Colorado Springs Police Department K-9s are taking a break from law enforcement duties to help the city's youth explore the world of law enforcement with their first-ever calendar fundraiser.

All 16 of the department's K-9s will be featured in the full-color calendar, which costs $15.

Proceeds go toward the Police Department's Explorer Program. The program allows Colorado Springs youth ages 14½ to 21 to learn about careers in law enforcement. Cadets work directly with officers and participate in various acts of service throughout the community.

Cadet uniforms cost $370, and currently, the students foot the bill. The goal is to raise enough money through calendar sales to eliminate the cost of the uniform for cadets, making the program more accessible to youth throughout the city.

Calendars will be available for purchase Thursday from 9 to 11 a.m. inside the community room of the Police Operations Center, 705 S. Nevada Ave., or through mail-in order. Order forms are available for download at the Colorado Springs Police Department Facebook page.
