Greenville Police Department’s’ narcotics and tracking canine Tobi will soon receive a bullet and stab-proof vest thanks to Vested Interest in K9s Inc donation.

Mark Riccardi of Monument Colorado sponsors the vest.

Tobi’s vest was provided by a non-profit organization called Vested Interest in K9s Inc.

Its mission is to provide bullet and stab-resistant vests to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies across the country.
Since 2009 Vested Interest in K9s has donated nearly 4,500 K9 ballistic vests.
Additionally, they have provided $93,000 in K9 first aid kits and more than $218,000 of K9 medical insurance premiums through their Healthcare for K9 Heroes program.
Tobi will receive their vest in approximately eight to ten weeks.
