The ACAMS Connecticut Chapter recently made a generous donation to Vested Interest in K9s Inc., with a match from ACAMS, to purchase two protective vests for two amazing K9s serving various communities within the U.S.
One of the K9s that received a vest is K9 Briggs of the Lebanon City Police Department in New Hampshire. K9 Briggs is a five-year-old German Shepherd who is certified in tracking, patrol and narcotics detection. K9 Briggs loves to go to work and in December 2015 he earned a life-saving award by tracking and locating a lost person who had been in the woods for over nine hours.
The other K9 is K9 Bobi of the Livingston Police Department in Montana. K9 Bobi is a 6-year-old male Belgian Malinois/Shepherd mix imported from Slovakia. K9 Bobi is a highly trained dual-purpose police service dog, proficient in narcotics detection and the patrol areas of obedience, agility, tracking, evidence search, area/building searches, as well as, handler protection and aggression control.
The Connecticut Chapter of ACAMS takes great pride in its philanthropic endeavors and we would like to thank all of our chapter members for giving us an opportunity to give back to our communities. The chapter would also like to sincerely thank everyone involved in the law enforcement community, including these two K9s for their service and dedication to their jobs to keep our communities safe.
