Horizon Coach Donates $5,000 to Arcadia Police

6/7/2005

News Photo Agencies across the State of Florida felt the blow of Hurricane Charlie, but few faced adversity like the City of Arcadia Police Department. Several of their vehicles were damaged, and their department's generator failed while the city went without electricity for over three weeks.

Many officers were displaced and had no place to go, as the Turner Center, the countys evacuation shelter was destroyed. Horizon Coach stepped in and provided temporary sleeping quarters with a 12-berth entertainer coach. This coach also served as a command center for the police department.

Horizon Coach had their share of problems. With the perimeter fences down and $3.5 million in building damages, the Arcadia Police Department, along with the Florida National Guard and other Florida police agencies, assisted in providing security to protect the coaches and buildings. In our ongoing effort to give back to our community and to help those who have served our city so well during these adversities, we were delighted to give $5,000 to the Arcadia Police Department said Michael Waller, President of Horizon Coach. Arcadia City Marshall Charles Lee said the $5,000 would be a welcome relief for the department which has been, and will continue to be, operating under a very tight budget as a result of lost tax revenue for the city.

We cant say enough about how we really appreciate what Horizon Coach has done for us, Lee said. The department will use the money for their K-9 unit, expediting K-9 Officer Tim Channels training, currently planned for January 2006. Additionally, the money will be used to purchase a dash-mounted camera for one of the K-9 patrol units.
