K-9’s Get Gifts Of Protection

Angels Camp, CA — Just in time for the holidays, Angels Camp Police Department’s four legged members get a gift from Santa. Well, it wasn’t really from Santa, instead Janine Fout of Copperopolis played Mrs. Clause. She gave 4-year-old German Shepard Kain and 2-year-old Dutch Shepard Kato two bulletproof vests.

“This is a fantastic gift,” says Angels Camp Police Chief Todd Fordahl. “They’re a fairly expensive piece of equipment because they are custom made for the dogs. Not only are they bullet, but they are stab resistant as well.”

The vest cost about $3,500 each. The vest will not be worn everyday by the dogs. Fordahl says they will only be suited up in situations that call for protective gear.
