SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — The newest member of the South Portland Police Department is getting some special equipment to go along with his graduation from training last week.

Trigger, a member of the city’s K-9 patrol, is one of 16 police dogs in Maine slated to get a bullet- and stab-resistant protective vest, thanks to a $15,000 grant from the Petco Foundation.
