The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office received two vests for their police dogs, donated by local citizens.
“The final two vests are being ordered thanks to a very generous Forsyth County resident,” the Sheriff’s Department said.
K-9s Edd and Lycan will receive bullet and stab protective vests thanks to a charitable donation from nonprofit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc.
The vests are sponsored by Joe Radack, of Cumming, and will be embroidered with the sentiment.
Since its start, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provided over 1,700 protective vests, in 49 states, through private and corporate donations, at a cost of over $1.6 million.
The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age.
The suggested donation to provide one protective vest for law enforcement K9 is $1,050.
Each vest has a value between $1,795 – $2,234 and a five-year warranty, and an average weight of 4-5 pounds.
A couple thousand dollars ($1050 if through the charity) to protect a police dog that can cost upwards of $50,000 seems like a prudent move.
