Tucson police are currently in the running for a grant that would help fund upgrades to their training facility, which is used for the police dogs. 

If TPD is selected, the grant will come from Aftermath, a company that provides crime scene cleanup services to families. The company plans to award a total of $16,500 to eight departments across the country. First place winners would take home $5,000.

Folks can vote for their favorite department — including TPD, which is currently in second place. If the department stays in second place, it'll win a $4,000 grant.
