DERBY — The Orleans County Sheriffs Department K9 team has been named one of 30 finalists in the Vested Interest in K9’s Law Enforcement Sports Utility Vehicle Giveaway.
Deputy Tyler Jacobs and K9 Jonah will compete for public votes to win a new Chevy Tahoe SUV with Police Pursuit Package and additional K9 unit customizations.
The prize is worth up to $50,000.
Vested Interest in K9s was the provider of the K9 ballistic vest used by Deputy Jacobs for Jonah, and the department says they are grateful to the organization for providing the vest back in 2016, and for the work that the organization does around the country to help protect a valuable law enforcement resource.
“This opportunity is a unique opportunity to obtain a needed and valuable piece of equipment that would greatly support the departments K9 unit and we couldn’t be more pleased to have been selected as a finalist,” said Chief Deputy Philip Brooks.
The public is invited to vote once per day for Deputy Tyler Jacobs and K9 Jonah on the charity’s contest page.
Public voting runs from October 1st through the 31st.
The K9 team with the most votes by the end of the contest wins the new Chevy Tahoe SUV.
The winner will be announced on the Vested Interest in K9s website and social media sites.
