Officer Chad Reiley and his K-9 Bisant ask community residents to vote

SAN LUIS OBISPO — Cal Poly Police Officer Chad Reiley and K-9 Brisant need your vote. The team, one of the department’s two K-9 units, needs the help of the community in its quest to win a needed new sports utility patrol vehicle. They are among 30 finalists in the Vested Interest in K9s’ K9 Law Enforcement Sports Utility Vehicle Giveaway.
“Winning this vehicle would be a huge benefit to our program,” Reiley said.

Vested Interest in K9, a Maryland-based nonprofit that provides bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement, is sponsoring the contest, which runs through 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31. The K-9 team with the most votes will win a new Chevrolet Tahoe PPV (police pursuit vehicle) — a prize worth up to $50,000.
“I am proud to have one of the best Police K-9 units to serve our community,” said Deputy Chief Brenda Trobaugh. “The Cal Poly Police K-9 unit is funded totally through community support. We would appreciate your support by voting repeatedly for K-9 Brisant to help us win a much-needed SUV.”

Since its inception, the nonprofit has provided more than 3,100 protective vests, in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at a value of $5.7 million.
To help Officer Reiley and Brisant win the SUV, participants are urged to vote once per day through the end of October at The winner will be announced on the Vested Interest in K9s website and its social media outlets.
