Garfield Heights police’s four-legged officers have new protection.
The K9 officers Rosco and Arlo received bullet- and stab-protective vests thanks to the efforts of Vested Interest in K9s, Inc., a Massachusetts based non-profit organization.
The vests will protect the K9s from bullet and stab wounds, as well as blunt-force trauma.
Each vest costs $950 and has a five-year warranty.
The K9 officers were sworn in at a ceremony in the beginning of the year.
