Carlsbad PD K-9 team gets bulletproof vests

Posted: Updated:

CARLSBAD (CBS 8) - The Carlsbad Police Department has a new tool to help keep its K-9 officers safe. 

A local charity has donated ballistic vests to protect the dogs in dangerous situations. 

The vests were donated to the Carlsbad Police Department by the K-9 Guardians Foundation. 

The foundation is a newly formed non-profit in San Diego County which aims to provide dogs who are placed in the line of duty the protection they deserve. 

The vests themselves were provided by Maximum K-9, and are rated by the Department of Justice as the highest level of ballistic protection for canines. 

Some of the footage in this video story was shot using a GoPro camera.
