Lakeville Police fundraising for their newest K9 member


You never know what type of scene you'll end up on when you're a police officer. That's why the Lakeville Police Department is trying to protect the newest member of the force, fundraising to buy their first K9 a bullet proof vest. Bishop is the newest member of the Lakeville Police Department.

Lakeville Chief of Police Patrick Howard said, "We want to make sure to protect the dog and that vest is going to protect the dog.  It's a very needed piece of equipment that we're trying to be able to raise enough money tonight to get for him."

Bishop is Chief Patrick Howard's partner, and they work together everyday. Howard said not only does Bishop sniff out drugs, he's also a great ambassador for the department.
