Town of Dickinson, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A K-9 in the Broome County Sheriff's Office will be better equipped for dangerous situations, thanks to a new bullet and stab proof vest.
Sheriff David Harder announced Friday that K-9 Aevar, 6, will get the vest in the coming weeks, thanks to Vested Interest in K-9s, Inc.
The Massachusetts-based organization specializes in providing vests for law enforcement dogs.
A group of New York friends donated $950 to Vested Interest, which ultimately lead to Aevar getting the protection.
Each vest costs $950 and comes with a five-year warranty.
Aevar is a certified explosives and general patrol K-9.
Deputy Leon Brown handles the dog.
