CSX awards the Deshler Police Department a $2,500 grant to the to help fund a police dog and related training


When residents of the Village of Deshler, Ohio became concerned about a growing drug problem in their community, they knew they could count on a neighbor to help.

“We are a main crossroad for CSX, and we see more than 100 trains a day,” said Don Parsons, Community Development Coordinator, Village of Deshler. “The railroad is part of our community’s identity.”

Earlier this month, CSX awarded a $2,500 grant to the Deshler Police Department to help fund a police dog and related training for the department. The total cost of the dog and training is $18,000, which the village leaders hope to raise by the end of the year.

“We are experiencing considerable drug activity in the village,” Parsons said. “We make arrests, but have trouble with locating the drugs. We hope to be able to find the drugs and convict the criminals via the dog.”

The grant is a logical extension of CSX’s commitment to making life safer, greener, healthier and more rewarding for the cities, towns and neighborhoods throughout the company’s 21,000 miles of track.

“Safety is at the very core of everything we do at CSX, so we’re proud to be part of this project to enhance public safety in the Village of Deshler,” said Randy Saint John, Supervisory Special Agent.
