Some new hardware for a four legged crime fighter.
The South Simcoe Police Service’s Police Service Dog Nitro has a new armoured vest. Made by LOF Defense in Edmonton, the new vest promises to keep cop’s best friend safe during violent situations while letting Nitro move freely.
You may have noticed on #NitroFridays that PSD Nitro was wearing his new @lofdefence protective #k9harness! The harness helps keep Nitro safe during violent situations while allowing him the freedom of movement to track bad guys and perform all his other duties. #tactical #K9 pic.twitter.com/DEznJPZ2CH— South Simcoe Police (@SouthSimcoePS) April 10, 2019
Nitro had been using the body armour of a previous Police Service Dog, and just acquired the new gear this month. It’s said the new vest not only offers increased protection, but the newer technology is more lightweight and cool for Nitro too.
