STURGIS – A member of the Sturgis Police Department is receiving some brand new equipment.
Department officials say K-9 Officer Tucky will be getting a bullet and stab proof vest. It comes as a donation from a nonprofit organization called Vested Interest in K9's Inc.
Tucky is 4 years old and came to the Sturgis Police from the Czech Republic. He is a dual purpose K-9 who is certified in narcotics detection, tracking and handler protection.
Tucky's vest is being sponsored by Oliver and Rita Miller of Taylor, Michigan. Vested Interest says the vest should arrive in eight to ten weeks.
Vests are paid for through private and corporate donations. All vests are custom made in the U.S. by Armor Express in Central Lakes, Michigan. Each vest costs between $1,800 and $2,200.
