SALEM, Ore. (AP) - The Salem Police Department has received a donation that will allow all six of its K9s to be outfitted with body armor.

KPTV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2adbLPN ) that the department says Oregon City resident Linda Stout donated to the Salem Police Foundation for the purchase of the dogs’ protective gear.

Lt. Keith Blair says Stout’s gift gives officers “peace of mind knowing their partner is as well protected as they are.”

The body armor comes designed specifically for police dogs and provides maximum coverage to protect the canines’ vital organs.
