OROVILLE, Calif. - Oroville Police will soon add a new K-9 officer to the force.

The department is sending out a big "Thank You" to the North Valley Community Foundation and the Butte Strong Fund. 

That's where a $20,000 grant is coming from, to help pay for the cost of purchasing the dog, and initial training sessions.

The department already has two K9 officers, so this will be it's third.

Rain and snow showers will become heavier and more widespread on Friday. Snow levels will drop as we head into your weekend, and then we'll dry out on Sunday.
