The Eden Prairie Police Department is issuing an open thank you to the anonymous donor who donated the full cost of a bulletproof vest to protect the agency's newest K-9, Jace.
According to the department, the generous contribution came from a caller who contacted the Eden Prairie Crime Prevention Fund to ask if they could cover the full cost of a vest purchase.
The vest arrived last week, and police say it will be worn when Jace is on high-risk patrol calls, during SWAT call-outs and in training sessions.
His handler, Officer Jenny Schnickel, offered thanks to the donor for helping keep Jace safe via a blog post celebrating the gift.
