MAYVILLE – A special gift this Christmas could save the life of a local police officer, thanks to the family of David and Cynthia Miley Evans, formerly of Jamestown.
Now of Doylestown, Pa., the Evans family bought and gifted K9 Bentley with a bullet-proof, stab-resistent vest.
The Evans, on behalf of their seven nieces and nephews, purchased the vest to be used by K9 Bentley. Bentley, a 2 year old Belgian Malinois Shepherd, is the newest canine member of the Sheriff’s K9 unit, and was not yet equipped with a protective vest until the Evans made their donation.
As a surprise thank you on Christmas Day, the entire K9 unit with K9’s Drago, Link, and Bentley arrived at the family’s Jamestown residence and met with the family members to thank them in person and to showcase the life-saving vest that was provided through their donation.
The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office would like to give a special thank you to Bennett, Gavin, and Parker Miley of Rochester, Max and Kenzie Miley of Jamestown and Cody and Maddie Clark of Jamestown.
With the thoughtfulness of Cynthia and David Evans, K9 Bentley will now be better equipped to face the dangers that he will encounter throughout his future career.
