Police dog gets bullet-proof vest

Dany, the South Williamsport police dog, is about to get extra on-the-job protection. Vested Interest in K9’s Inc., a Massachusetts-based non-profit organization, will deliver a made-to-order vest in the coming weeks for the four-legged officer.

The $950 vest should protect Dany from stab and bullet wounds, according to borough police.

Located in East Taunton, Mass., Vested Interest is an all-volunteer charity whose mission is to provide protective vests for law enforcement dogs.

Regency Police Supply, of Hyannis, Mass., makes the vests.
