The Barnesville Police Department's K9 Croc received a ballistic vest for duty which will keep him a bit safer.

The vest was donated by Brady’s K9 Fund from LOF Defence Systems, thanks to a donation from Rescuing The Parish, Ohio. Brady’s K9 Fund is based out of Strongsville and was founded by 11-year old Brady Snakovsky as a way to vest K9s throughout the country. It is Brady’s mission that all K9 Police Officers get the same protection as human police officers. Making it a priority to vest as many K9 officers as they can to send them home at the end of their shift. To learn more about Brady’s K9 Fund, visit www.bradysk9fund.com.
