Acura of Peoria Donates Bullet Proof Vest to Peoria K9 Unit

Peoria K9 Unit

The Peoria Police Department’s K9 Unit is now the proud owner of a brand-new bullet proof vest to protect their newest four-legged addition, “Hippie.” Our team at Acura of Peoria was honored to donate the special vest, and additional equipment, to support this unique team of canine heroes.

Through a partnership with the Peoria Police Citizen’s Academy Alumni, a non-profit organization that encourages the community, the alumni and the Peoria Police Department to come together to help deliver a safe environment for all, we were able to provide the Peoria K9 Unit with the tools they need to protect our city. We were beyond happy to recently present the bullet proof vest to Offer Joey Smith and his partner, Hippie, at our dealership, and look forward to teaming up with the unit in the future. Due to our donation, all four of the K9 Unit’s dogs now have bullet proofs to keep them safe and secure in the line of duty.

At Acura of Peoria, we do our best to give back to the community whenever possible and support local organizations. If you’d like to learn more about the Peoria Police Citizens’ Academy Alumni, be sure to visit their official Facebook page.
