Protecting Portsmouth's K9 police officers: Department shows off new protective vests

The Portsmouth Police Department has new gear to protect its K9 officers.

The gift of new ballistic vests for the dogs comes from the Breeden Company, a real estate developer, which is headquartered in Virginia Beach. A spokesperson for the company says the owner, Ramon Breeden, Jr. is an avid supporter of animals.

“We know the dogs are going to work every day protected, so it means a lot to us,” said Christine Gustafson.

Breeden has pledged $20,000 to each of the following police departments: Portsmouth, Virginia Beach, and Norfolk to be used for K9 gear.

The vests are custom-made to fit each dog.
