With the help of Ms. Fran Kyncl of Hart, the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office was able to purchase a protective vest for K-9 Krieger. Krieger is a new K-9 funded by citizens and businesses of Oceana County. The vest was purchased by Ms. Kyncl from Pro-Tech for $862.00 and is sized specifically for Krieger.
The vest is bulletproof, and stab resistant. This vest won’t be worn by Krieger at all times as officers do, but he will wear it in situations where his handler knows he is sending him into a potential threat. The K-9 program is completely funded by donations. Just like any family who has pets in their home, Krieger has become a part of the Oceana County Sheriff family, and they are looking forward to caring for him just like any other family member.
