Tazewell Moose Lodge provides Sheriff’s Office with life-saving donation

TAZEWELL, VA (WVVA) — The Tazewell Moose Lodge provided the Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office with a special, live-saving donation Friday.

The Moose Lodge raised $950 to purchase a bulletproof vest for the Department’s K9, Criss.

That’s about $300 more than a vest for a human officer.

“We don’t want anything to happen to him, you know,” said Criss’ handler, Cpl. Quentin Harris, “He’s a member of our team just like me, or the Sheriff, or any other person that works here. So we wanna offer him the same protection that me or any other deputy would get.”
