Body Armor for Barco

Abilene Police Department Staff with Canine Officer BarcoBarco, the newest K-9 officer in the Abilene Police Department, was introduced to the public on July 24 at the Antilley Road branch. He was purchased with funds donated by Abilene Teachers FCU after the APD unexpectedly lost two dogs in February.

During the introduction APD Chief Stan Standridge explained that K-9 officers require custom made body armor to protect them in possible gunfire situations. While the department has canine armor for German Shepherds, the latest three canine additions are Belgian Malinois, a slightly smaller breed less prone to hip dysplasia. Each set of armor costs about $750.

Credit union employees decided that we needed to protect Barco. In exchange for weekly donations during October, each donor was allowed to dress casually throughout the month. Huge success!  A recent donation of $2,290 will buy armor for Barco and two of his closest friends.

Good Dogs!
