Say what??

Allegan County Sheriff's Office K9 Lajki has received a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. The vest was sponsored by an Anonymous Sponsor and embroidered with the sentiment "This gift of protection provided by Vested Interest in K9s, Inc.".

K9 Lajki is a 26 month old German Shephard handled by Deputy Mike Martin. Lajki has been with the Allegan County Sheriff’s Office for one year. During his time here, Lajki has already located illegal drugs on several occasions and has had several successful tracks. Lajki also spends time in schools and at community events interacting with the public. Deputy Martin states “The vest received from Vested Interest will be a great asset for the safety of Lajki. The Allegan County Sheriff’s Office is very thankful.” Deputy Martin and Lajki are one team of a four Deputy/K9 team unit at the Allegan County Sheriff’s Office.
