We were recently visited by Jennifer and Jeff Collins who donated to Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog in honor of the late Officer James "Jamie" Cochrane. Their generous donation provided a ballistic vest for the newest member of our K9 Unit, Ragnar. Jamie's father, uncle, and cousin, Officer Gregg Hartnett, joined Mr. and Mrs. Collins as well as representatives from Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog.
Embroidered in the vest are the words:
IN MEMORY OF
OFFICER JAMIE COCHRANE
Jennifer Collins said , "Often, the reason why two-legged guys get to go home is because of the four-legged guys." Thank you for bringing to light the importance of protecting all of our officers.
We think they already share a special bond!
