(July 31, 2019) - The Cape Coral Police Department’s K9s are now fully outfitted with ballistic vests, with the last two K9s receiving theirs courtesy of Joey’s Legacy, Inc. and Survival Armor.

On July 31st, 2019 K9 Unit Sgt. Derosso and K9 Dallas as well as Ofc. Deberardinis and K9 Jax met in the Cape Coral Police Department lobby where Dallas and Jax received their ballistic vests. These vests were made possible due to a kind donation from Joey’s Legacy, Inc. and their founder/president, Scott Fine. The vests were manufactured by Survival Armor, and will be utilized by Dallas and Jax as they perform their duties.

“K9 Dallas, K9 Jax and the rest of their K9 partners are out on the streets in the same dangerous situations as their human counterparts, and each and every one of them would put their lives on the line for their officer handlers or for a citizen. We are extremely grateful to Joey’s Legacy and Survival Armor for assisting us in protecting these brave members of our police department.” ~Master Corporal Phil Mullen, Public Affairs Office
