Vinton K9 receives body armor

Posted: Updated:

The Vinton Police Department received a bullet and stab resistant vest for their K9, Gino.

It was paid for through a donation from the non-profit Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. 

Gino’s vest is embroidered with the sentiment, “In memory of K9 Ty, California City Police Department."

Ty died from complications during surgery to treat injuries received while he and officers attempted to rescue a woman and child being held hostage in a home.

K9 Gino’s new vest will primarily be worn during high-risk activities.
