AMSTERDAM, NY (NEWS 10) – One local police K9 will soon be a whole lot safer on the job thanks to a bullet and stab proof vest.
The police department says K9 Bruno has been awarded the vest thanks to the non-profit Vested Interest in K9’s and the Albany Police Athletic League.
Vested Interest has provided these vests for other local police dogs in the past.
The gear costs hundreds of dollars but is potentially lifesaving.
K-9 Bruno has been with the Amsterdam Police Department since last October.
