HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – The Holyoke Police Department’s newest four legged officer will be a little safer in the line of duty.

Holyoke Police Chief James Neiswanger has announced that 2 year old “Jori”, pictured here, has been awarded a bulletproof vest.

The Holyoke Rotary Club donated $950 to the non-profit organization, “Vested Interest in K-9s” in order to provide the vest for Jori.

Jori and his handler, Officer Ryan Tabb, were certified together this January in “Police K-9 Patrol operations”.
