SUMTER COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Four K-9 deputies in Sumter County has won the perfect layer of protection thanks to social media. 

Through a Facebook contest by Keeping K-9's in Kevlar, some Sumter deputies entered, hoping to win their K9 partners a new Kevlar vest.

We're proud to report that all four of those entrants will get a new vest, all thanks to your votes.

Each one of those vests is valued at $2,500, so a $10,000 investment in all. Officials say they're excited to benefit the community, at no cost to taxpayers.
