Hats off to the NPDP team for providing protection to these canine public servants. These dogs perform a tremendous service to the fight against crime by providing an insulating layer of protection to the officers in the field and in the line of fire.

Glad to hear about this organization. I tried to buy vests for K9 officers long ago but they would not accept them from a private individual. Also great to know the dogs get to go home with their handlers. There was a time, I was told, that when off shift, the dogs were kept in a kennel at another location. All the best to Vestnpdp, the police officers and their K9 officers.
