Citizens Buy Bullet Proof Vest For K-9 Officer In Greenbrier
GREENBRIER TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Greenbrier’s new K-9 Officer “Heidi” received a very special gift Wednesday afternoon, a brand new bulletproof vest. The vest was a gift from local citizens.
Seeing Smokey’s story about Greenbrier’s new K-9 Unit last week (Full story) Mike Hughes and his wife Kelly of Greenbrier wondered if the new K-9 Officer “Heidi” had Body Armor protection. Greenbrier Police Chief KD Smith said “no” and with that the Hughes’ went to work.
As the Hughes made their intent to buy Heidi new body armor known, friends Scott and Shannon Keffer and their daughter Colleen (who’s in the United States Navy) decided to help out with the cost of the new bulletproof vest.
The new $1,000 plus vest was ordered and today it was presented to Officer Heidi and her new handler, Officer Brian Speer. Speer was delighted at the generosity and support.
