John Chapman, Companion Animals Territory Sales Manager for Trouw Nutrition International, presented Folsom Police K9 Rex with a Kevlar safety vest donation on behalf of his company’s customers in the companion food industry.
The bullet resistant vest will provide a level of protection K9 Rex hasn’t previously had available due to the enormous cost.
Trouw Nutrition USA is an international leader providing the agriculture and pet food industries with technology-based ingredients. They are based in Highland, Ill.
The vests typically cost around $900 and Chapman’s company is donating 10 of them for different K9 units nationwide. The vests are very expensive and not all K9 units have them because of their price.
“It will definitely keep K9 Rex safer because of the ballistic capabilities of the vest,” Stokhaug said. “It’s the same type of material that we as police officers use for our bullet proof vests.”
Thank you again John Chapman and Trouw Nutrition International!!!
