Jackie the K9 safe on the job at the Bunnel FL, Police Dept.

K9, Jackie will be safe on duty with a Donated Ballistic Vest

The Bunnell Police Department's K9 Jackie, has been awarded a ballistic vest, donated by Tom Berry of the Blue Alert Foundation, who donated the Vest through an online t-shirt fundraiser. The fundraiser paid tribute to the 20 law enforcement dogs that lost their lives in the line of duty in 2014. The vest is embroidered with, “This vest is donated by the Blue Alert Foundation.”

One of The Blue Alert Foundation's mission is to provide these bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to law enforcement dogs throughout the United States. 

"As a Chief in a small municipality police department, where budgets are extremely tight, I am extremely grateful for the donation and want to thank the dedicated individuals in the non-profit organization that support our law enforcement professionals,” said Bunnell Police Chief Tom Foster.

The Blue Alert Foundation has ordered two more Bulletproof Vests for the Sanford, FL, Police Department's K9s, Edo and Aramis. The Vests should arrive at the Department soon. 

Tom Berry from the Foundation said, the next K9 that they want to Vest, is K9 "Charlie K" of the New Port Richey Police Department. K9 "Charlie K" was named after Officer Charles Kondek of the Tarpon Springs PD who was killed December 21, 2014 in the Line of Duty. "We are now raising funds for the Vest so we can give it to "Charlie K" ASAP. We are asking the public, who wants to help us to get this done, can go to and Donate to the K9 Vest Fund.
