Indiana police get new protective vests with help of 4th grader
The Franklin Police Department is saying thank you to a 10-year-old boy who raised enough money to outfit the department’s three K9 officers with protective tactical vests.
Richie Scott, a 4th-grader at Creekside Elementary School, started raising the money back in December as part of a community service project. The project was part of Richie’s testing to earn his black belt in Taekwondo.
“I wanted to protect those who protect me, and the whole community,” Richie said.
