Albion Department of Public Safety

Albion Department of Public Safety K9 Lucy Jo has received a bullet and stab protective vest
Albion Department of Public Safety K9 Lucy Jo has received a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. K9 Lucy Jo’s vest is sponsored by Sharon M. Peters of Grosse Pointe Shores, MI embroidered with the sentiment “In honor of Det. Lt. Richard J. Scott”.
Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. is a 501c (3) charity located in East Taunton, MA whose mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. The non-profit was established in 2009 to assist law enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four-legged K9 officers. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provided over 3,400 protective vests in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at a cost of over $5.7 million dollars.
The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age. New K9 graduates, as well as K9s with expired vests, are eligible to participate.
The donation to provide one protective vest for a law enforcement K9 is $950.00. Each vest has a value between $1,744 – $2,283, and a five-year warranty and an average weight of 4-5 lbs. There is an estimated 30,000 law enforcement K9s throughout the United States. For more information or to learn about volunteer opportunities, please call 508-824-6978. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provides information, lists events, and accepts tax-deductible donations of any denomination at www.vik9s.org or mailed to P.O. Box 9 East Taunton, MA 02718.

People of Albion, Goodbye Edition, May 4

“I think there’s no other place that I can think of or that I have experienced where there is such a strong sense of community where everyone is together in one place so I think that’s the biggest part I’m going to miss. That and the fact that everywhere you walk, people just say hi.”

“It feels so surreal. I feel like I’m supposed to die after I graduate. That sounds horrible but I’m being serious. I never imagined anything happening after college, I guess. First of all, I never imagined going to college to begin with, but then I never imagined what was going [to happen] after. I think it feels so surreal because I’m moving to a completely new place. New York is drastically different than Albion’s campus. Nobody’s gonna say hi to me and it's gonna be so weird. So I think right now it feels surreal but also I feel really proud of myself. I just feel that this is a huge accomplishment especially [because] my parents didn’t go to college. It feels very powerful and makes me feel very confident.

“Take in every moment. Truly take it in and just live out every single moment. Be present.” Andrea Sanchez, Senior from Waterford, Michigan.
