Longview Church Donates K-9 Vests

In a show of appreciation for area law enforcement, a Longview church donated some very expensive, but needed, equipment today. The congregation at Grace Creek Church in Longview took up a collection and bought two K-9 ballistic vests for the Longview police department. The vests, valued at $1400 each, were presented today in a ceremony at the church with dozens of police representatives on hand.

For K-9 officers, it's equipment that usually departments don't have a budget for, so the donation was well appreciated by those who will make use of it.
