Broome Sheriff’s K9 Gets a Protective Vest

A local law enforcement dog is due to get some very expensive clothes.

Officials with the Broome County Sheriff’s Office say K9 Aevar will be receiving a bullet and stab protective vest in the upcoming days.

Deputy Leon Brown’s four-legged partner is getting the safety gear thanks to Vested Interest in K9, Inc., which is a Massachusetts based nonprofit group dedicated to providing bullet and stab protective vests for law enforcement dogs throughout the United States.

A New York Group of friends donated $950, the cost of one vest, over the holidays in lieu of gifts.

K9 Aevar is a six year old Dutch Shepherd, certified as an explosives and general patrol K9 and has been on the force for five years.

Information about Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. can be found at www.vik9s.org or call (508) 824-6978.

Donations can be mailed to Vested Interest in K9s, P.O. Box 9, East Tauton Ma 02718 or sent on-line at the charity’s website.
