A New Jersey police K-9 will have an extra layer of protection while working, thanks to a nonprofit organization.
Evesham Township Police Department's K-9 Moose received ballistic body armor during a ceremony Monday. The bulletproof vest was donated to the department by the Capital K-9 Association.
Capital K-9 works with law enforcement agencies to equip police dogs with body armor and other safety equipment. The nonprofit organization was founded by the Trenton Police Department's K-9 unit.
