BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – The Titusville Police K9 Unit will be wearing brand new body armor in the form of bullet proof vests.
This life saving equipment was generously donated by Ring Manufacturing Incorporated, of Melbourne, and bestowed upon local K9 teams during a special four legged Law Enforcement BBQ on Monday May 2 2016.
All three Titusville Police K9’s will be preforming their duties wearing custom fit vests that are made with layers of ballistic material which absorb the impact from a bullet or an edged weapon.
Recently, K9 Officer “Jack” was stabbed during an attempted murder at Space Coast Regional Airport.
Body armor could have greatly reduced his risk of serious injury. Thankfully “Jack” made a fully recovery after the attack and is back to work protecting the community of Titusville.
“This is another amazing example of the outstanding support we get from the community”, said Commander Todd Hutchinson.
