GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) - A four-legged deputy with the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office will have a little extra protection while patrolling the streets.

The life-saving body armor will be custom made and fitted for K9 Dukat.

Since Vested Interest started, it has provided over 4,600 vests to K9s in all 50 states at a value of $6.9 million.
