ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A large donation is helping the Allentown police department beef up its force.

Fragrance Manufacturing Incorporated in Allentown donated $17,500 to the Gail Hoover Foundation to fund, train, and outfit a new K-9 police dog.

The foundation has been raising money for the city's K-9 unit.

FMI owners said their employees chose the Allentown police department for their donation to help make the city safer. The dog will join the force in April.
