A gift from a non-profit organization will help protect a local canine officer. 

K9s of Valor has provided an Ace K9 Hot n Pop heat alarm system to the Ballard County Sheriff's Department for K9 officer Kony. The device will be installed in Deputy Collin Garner's vehicle and will monitor the inside temperature. If the vehicle gets too hot, the system will activate an alarm, turn on the vehicle's fan, and roll down the windows.
