Some four-legged helpers in the Suffolk County Police Department got some new gear Tuesday.
Suffolk County Police Commissioner Rodney Harrison presented the department's K-9s with police shields
They were donated by local jeweler Gary Hudes after he learned the dogs had never received a shield on their collars.
He says it's important to acknowledge the hard work police dogs do every day.
"These dogs and their handlers, they deserve our recognition and our deep appreciation," Hudes says.
Each police dog undergoes extensive training, including evidence recovery, criminal identification and obedience training.
The K-9s responded to over 2,500 calls and helped locate over 30 missing people in 2021.
