FORT MYERS, Fl. - Some members of the Fort Myers Police force will patrol the streets with extra protection now.
At Monday's council meeting, the Retired Law Enforcement Association presented ballistic vests to four dogs in the Fort Myers Police Department's K9 Unit.
The vests were about $6,000, paid for entirely by donations.
The organization is also working on getting vests for canines with Sarasota County.
