Brookfield Police K9 Major has received a bullet and stab protective vest from non-profit Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. The vest was sponsored by Reimer and Bevis Families of Middletown. It's embroidered with the sentiment “Born to Love - Trained to Serve - Loyal Always”.
Major's handler, Officer Kyek thanked the families for providing his partner with the vital piece of equipment. He said it's reassuring to know that Major is further protected by this body armor.
The non-profit was established in 2009 and has provided over 2,900 protective vests in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at a value of $5.7 million dollars.
