Henrico Police receive donated canine ballistic vest


The Henrico County Police Division Feb. 15 received a ballistic vest for one of its newest canines after a donation initiated by the Cumberland Hospital for Adolescents in New Kent County.

The Cumberland Hospital of Adolescents made a monetary donation to the New Kent County Sheriff’s Office in honor of Sarah Ann McLaughlin, who was a communications officer with the New Kent Sheriff’s Office and the daughter of Sheriff Joe McLaughlin Jr. and his wife, Robin. She also was an avid animal enthusiast, and their donation was intended for the purchase of a bullet resistant vest for a canine. The New Kent Sheriff’s Office does not have a canine, so Sheriff Joe McLaughlin Jr. offered to purchase a vest for a Henrico County police canine.
