Officer “Buck” will get the vest thanks to a donation made by Vested Interest in K9s, Inc., a non-profit organization, through a fundraiser conducted by Thin Blue Line USA.  The vest will be embroidered with the statement, “Honoring those who served and sacrificed.”

The vest is expected to arrive in eight to 10 weeks.
