KENT COUNTY, Mich.– Some police K9s in West Michigan will be a little safer on the job, thanks to some much needed donated body armor.
Seven police dogs at Kent County Sheriff’s Office received their body armor this week.
Sabre, Blu, Shadow, Brick, Bodi, RJ, and Duke are now much better protected against knives and bullets.
All of the vests were donated through the non-profit ‘Vested Interest.’ Each one costs just over $1,000.
More than 3,100 have been donated to dogs in the U.S. since 2009.
