HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (KDKA) -- A little girl who hopes to become a police officer has raised over $3,000 for her town's police department.

Kaley has already held a lemonade and cookie stand for the police department. Last fall, her cookie stand raised $856 in a matter of hours.


With her latest fundraiser, Kaley has now raised over $3,000 for Harrison Township Police.

Kaley's goal is to raise $10,000 -- enough money to help the department buy a K9 to come into schools.
