New Bulletproof Vest for Plainfield K-9

Plainfield police K-9 "Vader" is getting a new ballistic vest thanks to a Danielson resident and Massachusetts charity organization, which also outfitted a Milford K-9 last week.

Police said Robert Truken, of Danielson, donated $950 for Vader's new bulletproof and stab-proof vest, which was sent over by Vested Interest in K9s, Inc., a nonprofit organization based in East Taunton, Massachusetts.

The charity also provided a ballistic vest to Milford K-9 Zeus, a 2-year-old German Shepherd and recent graduate of the state police K-9 training program.

Vested Interest in K9s has outfitted more than 1,320 police K-9s in 49 states since 2009.
