OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Nine Oklahoma City Police Department K9s are receiving protective vests this week from a nonprofit and others.

KFOR-TV (https://bit.ly/1EVu8lC ) reports the bullet and stab protective vests will be donated Wednesday in memory of K9 Kye, who was killed in the line of duty last August.

Each vest is embroidered “In Memory of K9 Kye, Oklahoma City Police Department.”

The vests are from the nonprofit Vested Interest in K9s, as well as A Breed Apart Clothing, and 5-year-old Tayte Stark.

Vested Interest was started in 2009 to assist law enforcement agencies with potentially life-saving body armor for their K9 officers.

Through private and corporate sponsorships, the group has provided nearly 1,400 K9s in 49 states with protective vests.
