New Vest for a Four Legged Officer

It will help keep a four legged Canton police officer stay as safe as his two legged partners.  The K-9, Rex now has his very own bullet-proof, and stab proof vest thanks to the ladies at the East Texas Women's Connection.  They raised the money for the vest through donations from the community.

Rex's two legged partner, Sergeant Steve Hall of the Canton Police Department expalins the vest will do more than give him a little peace of mind saying, "with the vest on, it makes me feel a lot better that he hopefully won't get killed...cause normally the K-9's, they're the one's, they're just protecting us. They're just doing their job. They're protecting us a lot more."

Rex and Steve have been partners for seven years. When Rex retires next year, the adjustable vest will be handed down to his replacement.
