STATE SHERIFFS ACCEPT DONATION OF PROTECTIVE VESTS FOR K9 TEAM — Hawaii’s K9 deputies now have some of the same protection as their human partners following the donation of five bullet and stab protective vests by nonprofit Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. to the Department of Public Safety (PSD) Sheriff Division.
As Gov. Neil Abercrombie looked on, the deputy K9s donned their custom vests in public for the first time at an unveiling held today at Washington Place. The vests will protect the K9s from bullet and stab wounds as well as blunt force trauma.
