A event Saturday night to raise money for the Egg Harbor Township Police Department K9 Corps has been deemed a success.

The "Protecting our KP Protectors" was held at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in EHT. Money raised was earmarked to fund bullet and stab proof vests to cover police dogs in the department.

According to the police department, enough money was raised to protect four K9 officers: Axl, Neiko, Blitz, and Diesel.
