MECA Wisconsin Police Canine Vest Foundation, Inc. “The MECA Foundation”
Wisconsin has over 235 canine officers and most of them do not have protection. The average cost of a K-9 vest is $840. Each vest is bullet and stab proof and made of the same ballistic material as the human officer vest. The vest weights approximately 6 lbs. The vests do not inhibit the K-9’s movement. The K-9’s wear the vests in training exercises so they are ready and able to do their work while wearig the vest. A K-9 vest is not worn like a uniform, but rather only as needed. The K-9s’ Handler will put the vest on the K-9 when there is an increased danger level.
