K-9 Sable
Collinsville, Il Police Department

Update - August 21, 2010
K-9 Sable receives her vest!

CARES kicked off our Community & Safety Program by being the proud sponsor of K-9 Sables bullet and stab resistant vest. The purpose of the vest is to prevent death, injury or maiming of police K-9’s by gun shot or stabbing as they encounter the criminal elements in their daily duties of police work. CARES purchased the vest through Illinois Vest A Dog and it will be sent directly to K-9 Sable’s handler, Officer Akers.

The purchase of this vest was made possible by using the money raised from our 2010 Summer Raffle and through several donations from CARES supporters.

As soon as the vest arrives we will have an opportunity to meet K-9 Sable and her handler, Officer Akers.

A special thank you to everyone who supported CARES and our raffle so that we could provide Sable the life saving protection she needs to keep our community safe.
