SALEM, OR (KPTV) -

Thanks to a generous donation, all six of the K9's at the Salem Police Department will have body armor.

Salem PD said Oregon City resident, Linda Stout, gave a donation to the Salem Police Foundation for the purchase of the body armor.

"We are grateful for Ms. Stout's gift," said Lt. Keith Blair of the Salem Police Patrol Division. "Because of her kindness, our K9 handlers now have peace of mind knowing their partner is as well protected as they are."

The body armor is designed specifically for police dogs. They are an easy, comfortable fit, durable, and most importantly, they give the maximum coverage for the protection of the canine's vital organs.
