To the Editor:
The article in last week’s Record states only one of the canines in the Sheriff’s Department has a protective vest.
It is important each dog has one. These canines do a very dangerous job and deserve no less than a deputy. Often he is first on the scene of an armed perpetrator.
Also, a vest is a good investment and much cheaper than replacing a dog.
Our community desperately needs a fund raiser for this cause; perhaps a brat and pop at Coborn’s, a booth at the Morrison County Fair or a raffle.
I dropped off a donation at the sheriff’s office for lack of a better avenue at this time. Hopefully, a vest can be obtained as soon as possible with the help of our community. — Maurine McKinley, Royalton
