A police dog, often referred to as a "K-9", is a dog that is trained specially to assist police officers in their work, such as searching for drugs and explosives, searching for lost people, looking for crime scene evidence, and protecting their handlers. Police dogs are widespread across the United States. K-9 units are operated on the federal, state, county, and local levels of law enforcement. In many states, a police dog is considered a full-fledged police officer and laws offer the same protection to the police dogs as they do to the officers.
This is why we need your help! Police officers wear ballistic vests to protect them from bullets and stab attacks. Police dogs are often right on the front line with their handler protecting the community in which they serve with little or no protection. It costs thousands of dollars to train and maintain a police dog. Unfortunately many police department budgets just do not have the funds to purchase ballistic vests for the K-9's.
The Four Legged Project, Inc. has made it their number one mission to provide ballistic vests to police K-9's. Vests cost approximately $1,275 a piece and last for five years before expiring just like their human counterparts.
Please help provide life saving protection to a police K-9 who unselfishly puts their lives on the line to make communities a safer place!
