WEST HAVEN — Portland police Sgt. Jim Kelly is resting easier knowing his police dog, Magnus, is protected by a ballistic vest — and he owes it all to local dog walker Brittany Murphy.
“I’m ecstatic. … It gives me comfort to know he’s vested,” said Kelly, who received the bulletproof/stab-proof vest over the weekend. “I was thrilled to hear she was undertaking this project to raise money — it’s not an easy task.”
