Sheriff Eric J. Weaknecht

In January of 2012, Sheriff Eric J. Weaknecht created a non-profit K-9 organization called the "Friends of Berks County Sheriff K-9". The goal of the program is to help maintain and enhance the Berks County Sheriff K-9 unit and to provide education and awareness to the citizens of Berks County.

As the Friends of the Berks County Sheriff K-9 association grows, we will expand our efforts to support the needs of the K-9's as well as make the public aware of the contributions and safety issues in the County of Berks where the K-9 teams will serve.
