The Roswell Police Department is the proud recipient of a new Kevlar bullet proof vest for their K9 officer, Bruno. Trouw Nutrition USA, a premier supplier of specialty ingredients and nutrients to the U.S. pet food industry, teamed up with Kevlar for K9s, a nonprofit organization, to graciously donate the vest valued at $840.

On Jan. 15 Brent Kirn, the territory sales manager with Trouw Nutrition USA presented K9 Bruno, his handler, Officer Greg Cooper, and Chief Rusty Grant with the Kevlar K9 Vest. Bruno is a dual purpose K9, meaning that he is trained for patrol functions and narcotics detection. Cooper states that Bruno will use his new vest for high risk situations.

Today’s working K9s in law enforcement are put in mortal danger when they are doing their jobs. Whether guarding territory, looking for criminals or searching for drugs, these dogs work in hazardous situations and are vulnerable to attack from every side. Loyal, intelligent and highly trained, these remarkable animals give 100 percent of themselves and 100 percent of their time, unconditionally. The vest will protect the dog, while he is out helping the public.
