Vested Interest in K9s, a national company, is giving away a Chevy Tahoe K9 vehicle to one law enforcement agency and the Marysville Police Department is in the running. 30 different K9 teams throughout the country were selected as finalists in the contest. Officer Justin Reeves and K9 Heiko from the Marysville Police Department are among the finalists. On the Marysville Police Department’s Facebook page it says their K9 team is donation based and a new vehicle would make a difference in the department.
To vote for Heiko and Reeves, anyone can go to the Vested Interest in K9’s website and click on Reeves and Heiko’s picture, then cast a vote. The site allows one vote per day from now until October 31st.

In addition to the 3,500 vests they have provided since 2009, they also have helped fund K9 medical insurance premiums, K9 medical first-aid kits, and K9 opioid reversal NARCAN kits.
