Monday during a shootout in Norfolk, Virginia, a K9 officer named Krijger was shot and killed. CNN anchor Anderson Cooper donated enough money for the Norfolk Police Department to purchase ballistic vests for all their police dogs.
Krijger may have survived the shooting if he had been wearing one of the life-saving, bulletproof vests.
“It is with heavy hearts we announce the loss of a loyal and dedicated member of the Norfolk Police Department. K9 “Krijger” died after being shot early this morning by an armed suspect. He served NPD for three years and faithfully gave his life to protect ours. Rest in peace, Krijger. Your work is done, but never forgotten.”
