Blue Alert Foundation has Awarded more K9 Bulletproof Vests

Tom Berry, Director of the National Blue Alert System
with PO Rosado/K9 Aramis & PO Harrison/K9 Edo
showing off their New Vests

The Sanford Police Department’s K9s Edo and K9 Aramis have been awarded ballistic vests thanks to a nonprofit organization, The Blue Alert Foundation provided $1900.00 for the vests.  The vest are embroidered with the sentiment “This vest donated by the Blue Alert Foundation”.

The Vests, are Custom made to each K9,  

K9 Edo is a 2 ½ year old Belgian Malinois/German Shepard Hybrid assigned to Officer William Harrison at the Sanford Police Department in Sanford, Florida.  Officer Harrison has been a K9 Handler with the Unit since November 2013.  K9 Edo was purchased by the Sanford Police Department from Southern Coast Kennels located in New Smyrna Beach, FL in 2013.  K9 Edo has completed over 640 hours of training and is certified in Patrol Operations and Narcotics Detection.  In his off duty time, K9 Edo loves to watch his handler do yard work while he lounges by the pool with his favorite toys.  K9 Edo also loves spending time with his two brothers; a Chocolate Labrador Retriever named Ale and his most favorite buddy Bagel the cat.  K9 Edo has a strong dislike for felony suspects who attempt hide or to flee from the law.  Just like his handler, K9 Edo knows when to flip the switch, the sweet K9 Edo who lets the cat show him who is boss at the house turns into an outstanding Patrol K9 when the time presents itself.  His body gets tense, his ears go up, and there is only one mission on his mind.  When the sound of the patrol car starts up, that is K9 Edo’s favorite part of the day because he knows its work time and he truly loves his job. 

K9 Aramis is a 6 ½ year old German Shepherd assigned to Officer Hector Rosado at the Sanford Police Department in Sanford, Florida.  Officer Rosado has been a K9 Handler with the unit since November 2013.  K9 Aramis was purchased by Sanford Police from Kreative Kennels located in Turlock, CA in 2009 when he began his formal training.  K9 Aramis has completed over 640 hours of training and is certified in Patrol Operations and Narcotics Detection.  In his off duty time, K9 Aramis likes to play with his family at home consisting of his handler and female members of the family including a female Shih-Tzu. Perhaps this might be the reason he likes to flirt so much with the ladies.    He receives his medical attention from a female Veterinarian and he likes attention from the Police Chief’s Assistant, she adores him and he knows it!  Most importantly, he loves being pampered and attended by mom and the girls at home.  Females are definitely his weak point, whereas males are a different story.  He has a strong dislike for suspects who are intent on assault, escape, or evasion.  His whole body changes; his ears go up and his chest comes out.  Work is his adrenaline and he truly loves every minute of it.
The Blue Alert Foundation, Inc. is a 501c (3) charity located in Venice, FL whose one of their mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. Each vest costs $950.00 and has a 5 year warranty. The nonprofit was established in 2012 to assist law enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four legged K9 Officers, through private and corporate sponsorship's.

New K9 graduates as well as K9's with expired vests are eligible to participate. The program is open to law enforcement dogs who are US employed, certified and at least 19 months of age.
