Assumption sheriff's police dogs get bulletproof vests
GONZALES - The four police dogs of the Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office now have bulletproof vests, thanks to a national nonprofit organization.
Sheriff Leland Falcon said in a news release Diesel, Isa, Major and Vickie were sized for its made-to-order vest that arrived this week.
Falcon said the vests are stab-resistant and bulletproof, and will protect dogs that are a priceless asset in police work.
The sheriff says Canine Wounded Heroes partners with the K9 Tactical Gear company to provide vests to police dogs with law enforcement agencies across the country.
