A Hillsboro Police Department K-9 is receiving body armor thanks to a charitable donation from a nonprofit organization.

K-9 Blazer is expected to receive the bullet and stab protective vest within eight to 10 weeks.

The vest is coming from Vested Interest in K9s Inc, a nonprofit dedicated to providing protective armor to dogs in law enforcement and related agencies. 

K-9 Blazer is a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois who has been deployed with the Hillsboro Police Department for one year. Officer Matt Schmidt is K-9 Blazer's handler.
