Lancaster police dogs get new gear
The Lancaster Police Department will receive three new bullet-proof vests for its police canines through the Kentucky Body Armor Program.
The program, administered through the Governor's Office for Local Development, was established in 1998 to help law enforcement agencies increase and upgrade protection equipment available for officers and canines.
This year a total of $188,381 was used to buy 482 officer vests and six canine vests. The money was raised through the sale of weapons confiscated by police to licensed gun dealers.
