Once again, Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody has used the power of social media to make changes happen.  Just yesterday Chody took to Twitter asking if anyone knew where to grants for bulletproof vests for K9 units, and this morning he says a company called "Vested Interest in K9s" donated all seven for free.  Chody says all seven dogs in the department will now wear those vests.
